VirtualMec uses OpenGL API to simulate Meccano model building

Category: ApplicationsComments

Oct 26, 2004

VirtualMEC is an OpenGL-API-based 3D CAD application for building Meccano models.  Meccano is a model construction system made up of strips, plates, girders, wheels and gears, based on the principles of mechanical engineering. Using VirtualMEC, just like the real Mecanno, you start with a part, insert a bolt into a hole, then add another part, add a nut to the bolt, and so on. VirtualMEC contains the rendering and the behaviour logic of more than 250 parts.
