Overview of Qt3D 2.0 – Part 2

/assets/uploads/news/news_graphics/KDAB-logo.png

KDAB are rewriting the Qt3D module of Qt 5 to provide an easy but flexible API for easily getting 3D content into your Qt applications using either C++ or QML. Qt3D is built on top of OpenGL and OpenGL ES and provides a data-driven renderer configuration. In the previous article we learned about the requirements and high-level architecture of Qt3D 2.0. In order to put some of this into context and to give you a concrete example of how it looks to draw something in Qt3D using the QML API, we will now briefly show the important parts of one of the simple examples that will ship with Qt3D.
