Common Libraries

Mesh & Geomtry

The Polygon Mesh Processing Library

Draco is a library for compressing and decompressing 3D geometric meshes and point clouds. It is intended to improve the storage and transmission of 3D graphics.

Mesh optimization library that makes meshes smaller and faster to render

A fantasy map generator based on Martin O’Leary’s “Generating fantasy map” notes

hmm. Heightmap meshing utility.

Simple C++ geometry processing library.

An Open-Source subdivision surface library.

Infrastructure for solid modeling.
The libfive shared library contains functions to build, manipulate, and render f-reps. A great deal of work has gone into the meshing algorithm, which produces watertight, manifold, hierarchical, feature-preserving triangle meshes.

Computational geometry and spatial indexing on the sphere

Geometry library for topological robustness

Polygon Clipping and Offsetting - C++, C# and Delphi

2D constrained Delaunay triangulation library

A generic programming header only C++ library for processing polygonal and polyhedral meshes

Modeling Tools

Dust3D is a cross-platform open-source 3D modeling software. Auto UV unwrapping, auto rigging with PBR Material support, pose and motion authoring all in one.
Automatic quad remeshing tool

This is the official source code of FreeCAD, a free and opensource multiplatform 3D parametric modeler.
