Support for other 3D model formats?!
« on: December 19, 2013, 05:18:15 am »
Hi Egon,
Well, with the success of jPCT, it is now more than just a game engine! I want to use it for civil engineering applications, which support for .ifc 3D models is needed. In general, is there any plans for support of more 3D formats?

Oh boy...i had a quick look at the ifc format's specs. It's not a file format, it's a freaking operating system. It's far away from the scope of the engine. However, jPCT exposes anything you need to do your own importer for it. There's also some implementation available here: http://www.ifctoolsproject.com/. Maybe that can be used to create something to load these files into jPCT.

Anyway, converting them to something that is supported out of the box might be the better idea...if such converter exists...
