QSlim uses the OpenGL API for interactive polygon simplification

May 23, 2005

Numerous applications rely on polygonal surface models for both simulation and display. Traditionally, such models are fixed sets of polygons, providing a single LOD which may not be appropriate for every application. QSlim provides a command line interface for fast and automatic simplification of highly detailed polygonal surface models into faithful approximations containing fewer polygons. The interactive interfaces uses the OpenGL API for rendering.
