Re: CGAL, triangulation, MMA


Hello Boon,

I realized I perhaps misunderstood you question below, and was a bit rude. If what you want is to try running MMA as it is, you just have to put the engine in the a simulation.
At that point, you are not only "started", you are "done". :)

What I meant was : you can't do more than putting the engine and getting txt files containing different statistics of contacts, forces, ... where most of the results will be meaningless if you don't know what you are looking for. You can see triangulation code as a geometry toolbox, and MMA as one usage of this toolbox. If you have precise needs, I can explain how to use the current triangulation code for it; giving a general introduction is more difficult.


Q4. Any other basic advice on how to get started with MMA will be wonderful.

Same answer as before : I can't help if I don't know what you want to do. Quite honestly, MMA it is not supposed to be a "ready to use" feature. It is too specific for that (and also still a bit "hot" in terms of publication). I can try and make it more user-friendly in the future, if it turns out that the licence issue can be fixed.
