a 3D Shape Generator for the Quake & Half-Life Map Format
Plan Shape is my first real C++ creation. It serves as a generator for 3-dimensional shapes like an arch, a torus or a sphere. To do so, it uses circles, which are based on a specific mapping method. This will lead to the amazing fact, that all faces of those circular shapes are >planar<! PlanShape can export these generated shapes as MAP or OBJ files.
PS is no professionally made software, there is no GUI! I basically learned C++ by creating it. You can use it via the command console or you drag and drop template files onto the EXE. Both will produce the same results. Template files are a faster way, whereas using the console might be easier (or even more confusing, depends).
For more details and informations about the tool, please take a look at the documentation.
