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...
