feedback, ideas appreciated
if I'm understanding the description of this file spec
then, in order to make an application capable of performing searches for overlapping areas in multiple objects,
the data would require a matrix something along these lines:
the actual number of models would be a variable in and of itself.
int model(x, y, z, w)
int model2(x, y, z, w)
int model200(x, y, z, w)
( naturally, that would be a create model function that would check for the total number of models in existance,
prior to creating it )
and each instance of model is an instance of a class, as there is more data than just geometry for it.
the class would contain:
transformation data ( joints for animations )
world positioning data ( yet another x,y,z co-ord set )
my wife uses several 3d graphics / modelling applications, I've noticed that one area where they all tend to be weak is in "boolean" operations.
( union, difference, and intersection. )
the union is the most frequently used, yet the applications fail with the message:
"objects do not intersect"
roughly 75% of the time
I've tested this with object that are 1/3 overlapped in all axis and gotten that message.
so I"m working on a lib to improve these operations.
( and my relationship ;) )
any words of wisdom on my basic premise for the class and matrix structure?
okay, the int is just for this example, float model(x,y,x,w) is more accurate. ;)
