“The currently dominant 3D graphics and simulation paradigm, based on triangle/polygon meshes, is fundamentally flawed. Meshes only model surfaces – a hollow and thus very incomplete approximation of reality. Mesh content creation is complex and technically demanding; costly with high barriers of entry. Many layers of “hacks” (e.g. UVs) make editing and distributing mesh assets prohibitively cumbersome.”
The atomontage engine is shifting the paradigm of 3D from surfaces to volumes. A super interesting point of view. I will start a research on libre project have the same approach!
