DigitalRune Geometry is a geometry and collision detection library for the Microsoft .NET Framework and the XNA Framework. The library is designed and optimized for use in 3D games and simulations on Windows, Windows Phone 7 and Xbox 360.
DigitalRune Geometry is used for all kinds of collision detection tasks, including
- contact determination for rigid body physics,
- frustum culling in graphics engines,
- line-of-sight determination for game AI,
- collision detection for character movement,
- mouse picking and ray casting,
- and more.
This product is part of the DigitalRune Engine.
- Microsoft .NET Framework 4
- Microsoft XNA Framework 4.0 (Windows, Windows Phone 7 and Xbox 360)
- Mono (experimental)
The XNA Framework is supported, but not required to use this product.
Please contact us if you need support for any other platform (for example: Silverlight).
- Primitive shapes (e.g. sphere, box, capsule, cone, cylinder, height field, line segments, view volumes, plane, etc.)
- Complex shapes (e.g. composites of primitives, convex hulls, triangle mesh, etc.)
- Uniform and non-uniform scaling of shapes
- Automatic computation of tight-fitting bounding shapes
- Volume computation for all shapes and closed triangle meshes
- Supported collision queries:
- Have-contact queries (boolean queries)
