Hi,
Ive just begun a university project that aims to build a CAD type application where four images will be shown on screen of the same object ( e.g. cube), one of which will be 3D. the user will be able to choose a desired object in the 3D space via the mouse.
A stipulation is that it must be carried out using Visual Studio.net (C++ and MFC) and OpenGL.
What kind of higher level OpenGL based API would be best suited for this would you think?
hope this makes sense,
thanks,
stephen.
