Hello, I was wondering if there was anyway I could get my Solidworks, autocad or other 3d drafting models into an OpenGL mesh. I have a 4th year design project where a group member has done all the mechanical modelling in SolidWorks, and it would save me significant time if there was an easy way to import a CAD model to OpenGl for my simulations. Thank you for your time, -Shawn

Hi Shawn,

An eng student I know said that SolidWorks can export to Wavefront OBJ format. Since it's a text format, getting the vertex and triangle information from the file is pretty straight-forward.
