Using the algorithms of the open-source CGAL library, this plugin makes possible to create a volumetric mesh based on a surface mesh. CGAL is a software project that provides easy access to efficient and reliable geometric algorithms in the form of a C++ library. CGAL is used in various areas needing geometric computation, such as geographic information systems, computer aided design, molecular biology, medical imaging, computer graphics, and robotics. This plugin is available in SOFA and can be activated in the project configuration.
This plugin interfacing CGAL with SOFA is available under the LGPL open-source license but the CGAL project itself is dual licensed (namely under the GPL3+ and a commercial license).
An online documentation of the plugin is available.
