This article explains how to write a very simple application to render 3D models using OpenGL. The article uses Qt/Qt Creator to implement the UI, making it easy to compile and run the application on multiple platforms. The source code of the prototype built is available on GitHub. The goal of this simple application is to generate 3D models, save them to a file with a simple format, and to open and render them on screen. The 3D model in the rendered scene will be rotatable and zoomable, to give a better sense of depth and dimension.
