Hey, anyone know a place or a tutorial where i can download(/read how to) a ".obj file loader" for borland builder c++. I got the code so i can read the information in the files but i can't paint the object on the screen. It has to be one for borland builder and it has to use .mtl-files aswell.

You could parse both the geometry and the material.

You can read the common instructions or you could write a parser (flex/bison) to do the work.

If you take a look to the obj/mtl grammar you'll notice that the sintax is quite simple and also the grammar.

Once all the needed data is on memory you can build several vertex arrays/buffers and the corresponding triangle indices buffer for each material. Then is easy to loop each material, change the renderer state (material and buffers) and render the indices buffer.
