3-D Engine for model drawing

February 19, 2014 - 11:16pm #1

I am new to vuforia, i am developing an app using vuforia. I want to know what are the diffrent 3-d engine do i have for 3-d model drawing, Right now i am using irrlicht 1.9 3D engine and drawing model in ogles2 but the problem iam facing is irrlicht drawing its own glsurface(in native code) and vufora drawing its own glsurface(in java files) so as soon as  my application detects the image whole screen become black and model has been drawn, i tried to make background transparent but it doesnot work, so i want to know what other 3D engine option do i have.

we cannot point you to a specific 3D engine, as there are so many out there (both free/open source or commercial); 

from memories, we have seen quite a few developers in this Forum using an engine called JPCT-ae, which is Java-based, supports loading 3D models in a few different formats (OBJ, 3DS, MD2, ASC, according to their specs) and is pretty easy to integrate with Vuforia.


There is also a Vuforia integration tutorial here:


Note however that we have not extensively tested such engine, and I cannot give any recommendation on performance or any other possible limitations.


As a side note: Vuforia has an extension for Unity 3D.  This is the recommended 3D platform  for Vuforia, if you intend to build sophisticated applications which support 3D models loading/rendering and other advanced graphics effects.
