15.4 Summary

Java 3D includes relatively basic support for processing geometry using the utility classes in the com.sun.j3d.utils.geometry package. The utilities are easy to use, and are useful for simple triangulation. For more powerful geometry manipulation operati ons (such as mesh generation or decimation you will have to convert one of the many utility libraries, usually written in C).

The interfaces and classes defined in the com.sun.j3d.loaders package however have proved to be very useful. They have defined a standard upon which many of the community Java 3D developers can build, and a large variety of loaders have been released—mos t are free.
