Python Mesh Viewer is a very basic tool to display, and play with, 3D models, also known as meshes. The author is Thomas CapricelliModels can be
- one of several included examples in code (mostly classical polyhedra)
- constructed from code (defining points, triangles and quads)
- loaded from a ".mesh" file
Currently the only file format supported is the undocumented ".mesh" format from the closed source software medit. Yes, this is a shame, and I barely dare admit it here, but those files were just easily available in the research laboratory where I once worked. This should be easy to add support for any other (documented) format, though.
The rendering is done with absolutely no hardware acceleration (no opengl). The idea is a kind of academic demonstration of how to render a mesh object.
