I am trying to visualize 3D CAD objects in Julia. Context: I have a CAD model for a spacecraft and I want to display it in my Julia application.
So far, I can convert the native CAD file into an .stl or .obj file, and load it and visualize with GLVisualize (although the result is not a crisp “clean” mesh, but that’s a different story), and I think I should also be able to do that via MayaVi, although I haven’t figured it out yet. PyCall with MayaVi
What I would like to be able to do is also load and display the texture that is encoded in the OBJ file to go from a monochrone mesh display to the native colored CAD model
Any insight on if there is a way to accomplish that today with Julia?
