Re: CGAL, triangulation, MMA
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
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
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.
