OGLE (i.e. OpenGLExtractor) is software package by Eyebeam R&D that allows for the capture and re-use of 3D geometry data from 3D graphics applications running on Microsoft Windows. It works by observing the data flowing between 3D applications and the system's OpenGL library, and recording that data in a standard 3D file format. The primary motivation for developing OGLE is to make available for re-use the 3D forms we see and interact with in our favorite 3D applications. Video gamers have a certain love affair with characters from their favorite games; animators may wish to reuse environments or objects from other applications or animations which dont provide data-level access; architects could use this to bring 3D forms into their proposals and renderings; and digital fabrication technologies make it possible to automatically instantiate 3D objects in the real world.

I am interested in playing around with the OpenGLExtractor.  The following link on your page is broken.

Thanks!  The project sounds awesome.

I need a 3d model of the city center of Wien for an architectural contest

now i have find OGLE but i can't download it becouse the link doesn't work ( )
