View Full Version : Where can find 3D-Mesh Models ?



12-14-2000, 02:59 AM
Hi OpenGL fans,

i've just finished my first OpenGL-Viewer and tested it with a very simple object. But I need more 3d triangle-meshes of interesting objects.

Where can I find such objects ?
(I'm not looking for complex scenes, just for single but complex 3d-objects)

Thank you,

What format you want your mech to be stored in? Anyways, 3D Cafe (http://www.3dcafe.com) got quite alot of free models in different formats.

Raw ascii or binary would be nice:
Triangle_1(Vertex_1, Vertex_2, Vertex_3)
Triangle_2(Vertex_1, Vertex_2, Vertex_3)
...

You loading .ASE, .3DS, .LWO, .COB, .OBJ, or anything else? What fileformat are you loading now? If you are using a custom fileformat, I don't think there's much hope finding something.

Yes it's a custom format (the very simple one described in my previous mail). Ok let's forget that custom format. There are a lot of polygon meshes for 3ds in .3ds format. But where can i find a description of the file format ?
