Python Mesh Viewer 2.1

A simple tool to display, and play with, 3D models, also known as meshes
Python Mesh Viewer is a simple tool to display, and play with, 3D models, also known as meshes.

You can either construct them in the code (defining points, triangles and quads), or load a file. Currently the only file format supported is the ".mesh" format from the closed source software medit. Yes, this is a shame, and I barely dare admit it here, but those files were just easily available in the research laboratory where I work. This should be easy to add support for any other (documented) format, though.

The rendering is done with absolutely no hardware acceleration (no opengl). The original idea was a kind of academic demonstration of how to render a mesh object.

Although it only has been tested under linux so far, it should work on any platform supported by pygame, most notably MS Windows, Mac OS X and most unices like linux or the BSDs.
