JMeshLib provides a framework to work with manifold triangle meshes. It implements an edge-based data structure with all its fundamental functionalities (i.e., file I/O, mesh construction/destruction, traversal). It is written in C++ and includes support for reading and writing the following file formats:
VER-TRI (proprietary format used at IMATI-GE / CNR)
and partially:
VRML 1.0
IV 2.1

In contrast to other generic libraries dealing with surface meshes, JMeshLib includes tools to automatically fix the most common problems present in surface meshes coming from laser scanning (conversion to oriented manifold, topological noise detection, hole filling, removal of degenerate faces, ...) through a clear and easy-to-learn C++ API.
This package provides pre-compiled static libraries for both Linux_i386 and MS Win32 (lib/libjmesh.a and lib/jmesh.lib respectively).

Click here to get a quick introduction to the use of the API and some details on the underlying data structure.
See the comments within the source files for further details or use doxygen to produce documentation in a more readable format. The file "tin.h" is a good starting point.

System Requirements
You need to have a 32 bit PC running either:
- ELF Linux with standard development tools (gcc/g++)
- Windows OS with MSVC 9.0 (Visual C++ 2008)
- Mac OS X with standard development tools (gcc/g++ + makedepend)
