Questions tagged [convex]

"Convex" describes a shape whose interior angles are all less than 180 degrees - it has no concave valleys anywhere. Convex polygons and convex polyhedra are often used in collision detection, because they're simpler to evaluate than concave shapes.

What is the minimum number of points in a convex hull in most engines?

A convex hull shape in a 3D game engine defined by vertices needs at least 4 points in order to have volume, since that would make it a tetrahedron. However, some game engines may support fewer points,...

Shrink a convex polygon

Shrinking a concave polygon is quite hard, to do well. But I expect shrinking a convex polygon would be easy. The naive approach of moving each vertex a certain distance to the centre gives me poor ...

How do I test for collisions between two concave shapes decomposed into collections of convex polyhedra?

I am using convex decomposition with SAT (separating axis theorem) and I generate two arrays of convex pieces, How do I submit my arrays to my collision detection method which only takes two arguments....
