Gents and Ladies:

I have a set of data represented as a "polygon soup", meaning that the solids

are represented as a bunch of triangles with vertex normals - assume that they

are connected (manifold).

Given such a representation, what's the best way to collect all these triangles

and reorganize them into something useful, like a winged-edge representation?

I've gotten plug-and-chug to work, but there's got to be a better way.

Octtrees maybe? Thanks in advance, and I'd appreciate an email...
