## Extra Lecture I -- Jan 23

Lecturer: Carlos

Topics: Software libraries for geometry processing

Location: Jones Conference Room. WEB 3840 Time: 3:30PM

This will be a fairly short meeting to help you get acquainted to the software we will be using for the first assignment. You will be using trimesh2, a lightweight c++ library for triangle meshes from Szymon Rusinkiewicz: http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~smr/

it is trivial to compile trimesh2 on Linux and Mac OS X. I have no experience with Windows, but I'll gladly try to help if you bring your laptop to class. if you're an enrolled student, you can get Visual Studio for free here

Website with many mesh files: Aim@Shape shape repository

Stanford 3D repository

Bilateral Mesh Denoising. Fleishman, Drori, Cohen-Or. SIGGRAPH 2003. pdf version of paper

*Building on Windows:*

Brad has created two Visual Studio Solution files (2005 & 2008) that students can use if they want (I assume one of the profs will take this down if they don't like it). The files have been tested locally on his machine and at least compile and allow all the utilities (MeshAlign, MeshCat, MeshCC, MeshFilter, MeshMake, MeshShade, MeshView) print out proper command line usage when run with no parameters.

Once you have built the solution you should find a bin and a libs subdirectory that contain Debug and/or Release directories that should contain the binary/library files respectively.

Brad would really rather not troubleshoot these files if you can't get them to work, but thought that perhaps some students might have some use for them anyway.

The files can be found here
