I'll have a look this weekend. ty. 2008/11/14 Wang Rui [EMAIL PROTECTED]: Hi Simon, As Alberto Luaces said, there is an external library for OSG to support various polygon technologies, osgModeling (http://code.google.com/p/osgmodeling/) is completely new work and not familiar to others.

Hi Simon, As Alberto Luaces said, there is an external library for OSG to support various polygon technologies, osgModeling ( http://code.google.com/p/osgmodeling/) is completely new work and not familiar to others. But there have been already Bezier, NURBS, extrusions, revolutions (constructed

For me Geometry handling and generators. I've spent part of today writing a generalised extrusion function but I'd be highly surprised if this hasn't been done 10,000 times already. I couldn't find such a function in osg. If it is there, then maybe you could get your students to help with the

Hi Rick -- Congrats, this sounds like a great undertaking. I have somewhat similar plans you might be interested in. My intent is to set up an internship program with CU Boulder and take in two interns starting in January. While I will expect real work out of them (to be open sourced, either as

Thanks Simon, A CSG library would be a great idea to work on. I needed one of those for some work I did with Northrop Grumman. The generalized extrusion function is cool too, maybe for a single student or as a feature of the CSG library. I didn't look too deeply, but does the gts library work

Thanks Paul, Lots of great project ideas. We are looking for text book kinds of materials. Do you have recommendations in that regard, perhaps something you and Bob have already written? Like I mentioned, I would really like to start off with OpenGL and then show how OSG helps. -- Rick Hi
