Geometry / Mesh Calculations

CoppeliaSim handles major geometric calculations via the Coppelia Geometric Routines, which is a collection of c++ functions that can be embedded into stand-alone applications. Those routines are wrapped in the geometric plugin for CoppeliaSim, which is in charge of handling:

  • collision detection
  • distance calculation
  • proximity sensor simulation
  • Other geometry / mesh functionality is supported via dedicated plugins:

  • simConvex, offers e.g. convex hull and convex decomposition operations
  • simOpenMesh, offers e.g. mesh decimation operations
  • simIGL, offers boolean and other operations
