Qt 3D: Basic Shapes C++ Example#
Shows four basic shapes that Qt 3D offers and sets up a mesh for each of them.
Basic Shapes shows four basic shapes that Qt 3D offers: a torus, a cylinder, a cube, and a sphere. The example also shows how to embed a Qt 3D scene into a widget and connect with other widgets.
Running the Example#
To run the example from Qt Creator , open the Welcome mode and select the example from Examples. For more information, visit Building and Running an Example .
Setting Up a Torus Mesh#
As an example, we go through how to set up a torus mesh. First, we instantiate the
QTorusMesh, and then we set the mesh specific parameters, which for torus are radius, minor radius, and the number of rings and slices.
m_torus = Qt3DExtras()::QTorusMesh() m_torus.setRadius(1.0f) m_torus.setMinorRadius(0.4f) m_torus.setRings(100) m_torus.setSlices(20)
The size and position of the torus can be adjusted with transform components. We create scale, translation, and rotation components and add them into the
Qt3DCore.QTransform torusTransform = Qt3DCore().QTransform() torusTransform.setScale(2.0f) torusTransform.setRotation(QQuaternion.fromAxisAndAngle(QVector3D(0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f), 25.0f)) torusTransform.setTranslation(QVector3D(5.0f, 4.0f, 0.0f))
To change the diffuse color of the mesh, we create a
QPhongMaterial and set its diffuse color.
Qt3DExtras.QPhongMaterial torusMaterial = Qt3DExtras().QPhongMaterial() torusMaterial.setDiffuse(QColor(QRgb(0xbeb32b)))
The final step is to add the torus into an entity tree, and we do that by creating a
QEntity with a parent entity and adding the previously created mesh, material, and transform components into it.
m_torusEntity = Qt3DCore()::QEntity(m_rootEntity) m_torusEntity.addComponent(m_torus) m_torusEntity.addComponent(torusMaterial) m_torusEntity.addComponent(torusTransform)
We can control the visibility of the entity by defining whether it has a parent or not. That is, whether it is part of an entity tree or not.
