Software & Resources
Research apps and source codes:
qMini: a minimal QT-based OpenGL app. Beta (OpenGL2.0/QT4). An old version for OpenGL1.2 is also available here
gMini: a minimal code to display a mesh in OpenGL. Last version on google code - Beta (OpenGL 1.2) - Beta SL (OpenGL 2.0)
web-gMini: a simple WebGL version of gMini and qMini, allowing to load a 3D file and vvisualize it right in the browser. Uses Three.js. Run it here.
pMini: a minimal binary point set (point+normal) viewer in OpenGL. Beta (OpenGL 1.2)
grid2mesh: a minimal volumetric grid (in/out label) mesher. Beta
3D Point Sets: a few point sets acquired during our research project on 3D capture. Link to the download page 3DLife 3D Scenes: two 3D environments designed for the 3DLife project. Download.
Reverie 3D Scenes: anvironments designed for the Reverie project. Download.
Medical 3D Models: fetal and mother numerical models from our FEMONUM project. Database.
