A new continuous collision detection and physics library is available. Also a general forum for physics developers and researchers is online: http://www.continuousphysics.com/Bullet/phpBB2/index.php Open source and Free for commercial use (although I would wait until a more mature version for the latter, before using it for your surgical simulation) Main features: - discrete collision detection using GJK - time of impact calculation for general convex objects under rotation and translation - raycast on general convex objects (implicit & polyhedral, implementation of Gino van den Bergen's GDC 2004 paper) - algebraic time of impact using screwing motion - persistent manifold generation between general convex objects, and convex-concave. No concave-concave. - dynamics framework using either the ODE quickstep or a rudimentary iterative pairwise constraint solver - demos showing most of above features Erwin Coumans FAQ: http://www.continuousphysics.com/Bullet_Faq.pdf Windows demo executables: http://www.continuousphysics.com/p/bullet0.1demos.zip and a small jenga demo: http://www.continuousphysics.com/bullet_jenga.zip Linux alphabuild of bullet gameblender integration blender_bullet_linux.tar.bz2 bulletdemoblends.zip for linux blender [Edited by - erwincoumans on July 25, 2005 7:47:54 AM]
