    In need of a swept_surface .dae example

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been tasked with building a (very limited) Collada exporter in C#. I'd like to use swept_surfaces as defined in the 1.5 spec but can't find any examples to point me in the right direction.

    Does anybody have a sample .dae file I could use as a reference? That or a suggestion for a freeware tool I could use to create one.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Hi,

    the swept surface element can only be used when building up a brep (boundary representation) model.

    With breps you can describe geometries in an exact way. Useually you breps when you need exact information for futher processing on the geometry. For visualization generally meshes are used.

    So if you really want export breps with your exporter i can create a sample with swept surfaces.

    Kindly regards

    Steffen
