Color Integration For simImportMesh in Regular-API

Postby smeissne » 23 Oct 2016, 11:14


currently I'm working on a Plugin which allows you to import an OpenStreetMap map to generate a 3D V-Rep Scene. My 3D street objects, like houses and trees, are saved in an *.obj file and imported by the simImportMesh() function of the Regular API. If I do the import manually then colors are correctly defined. Using the Regular API all colors are set randomly and have to be changed manually like:

Code: Select all


Is there a way to import the the color information from the *.obj.mtl file like the frontend function does? I think results would look quiet better.


Thank you and kind regards,

Hello Sören,

this looks interesting!

Have you tried with simImportShape? This will however directly create the shape objects.

Let me know,
