How can you do this? After searching for a while I cam across the wording "tesselate", but I didn't come up with algorithms to use with it either. I would like to extend my SAT to work with concave polys as well and I need convex polys inorder to do so. [Edited by - Trox on January 2, 2008 12:30:22 PM]

In short, you don't. Go the other way, convert your concave polys into convex polys.

See SWIFT++, http://www.cs.unc.edu/~geom/SWIFT++/
and Cocave decomposition sample code: http://codesuppository.blogspot.com/

I am very sorry, I made the title backwards. I'll try to edit it if I can. I want to create convex polys from concave polys.

Typically, decomposition to triangles is desired. It's aptly called polygon triangulation. Various methods exist, trading off design-simplicity, run-time efficiency and uniformity of the resulting triangles.

I'll leave the recommendations up to somebody more experienced than me.
