MeshLab is an open source, portable, and extensible system for the processing and editing of unstructured 3D triangular meshes. It also supports processing of raw data produced with 3D digitization tools/devices, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering, texturing and converting this kind of models.
MeshLab for iOs is an advanced 3D viewer for iPad and iPhone. MeshLab for iOS has been designed to be able to display complex 3D models in a simple and intuitive way, allowing the accurate inspection of a 3D model through a precise yet straightforward navigation.
The Visualization and Computer Graphics Library (VCG for short) is a open source portable C++ templated library for manipulation, processing and displaying with OpenGL of triangle meshes. The library, composed by more than 150k lines of code, is released under the GPL license, and it is the base of most of the software tools of the Visual Computing Lab
