QMSH for Android
- procedural power in your pocket.
The QMSH Mobile-Editor is a simple app for creating 3D mesh using procedural modelling techniques.Project Home

(unified launcher)Technical Support
QMSH enables you to define geometry by writing concise generative scripts. As such you can use QMSH as a simple stand-alone portable scripted CAD system.Note
: this app does NOT support interactive 3D editing.Note
: English localisation only.
The input to QMSH is a set of plain text statements, and the output is a 3D mesh. In other words - with QMSH you write text messages (scripts) to your computer describing how to make 3D objects (mesh).
QMSH exports OBJ, PLY, OFF and STL model files to enable you to use your creations within other tools and systems - for example in simulated environments, visualisations or as input to a 3D printer.
QMSH aims to be easy-to-use, succinct and flexible.Note
: this app is an experimental tool designed to test the limits of procedural modelling on low-power mobile devices. In this sense it is a work in progress. It is reasonably stable - however some features require further performance optimisation.
If you catch any bugs or there are geometric modelling features you would like to see added, or you have suggestions to improve overall usability - send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.Note
: there is detailed in-app documentation and a host of built-in example scripts to help you get started quickly - with more on the way.SUMMARY OF KEY FEATURESGeometric Primitive Library

I hope you find Quick-Mesh useful.Note
: this app requires permission to read and write device storage in order to open, run and save scripts and export 3D mesh. On newer Android devices this permission is no longer granted automatically upon install and must be explicitly granted by a user either via an in-app request or through app settings. If this application fails to open, run or save scripts - it is because the storage permission has not been granted. To fix this - head to app-settings and enable storage access for this app. After granting the storage permission restart the application (i.e. close it and then relaunch it) in order to ensure that the permission change takes effect.
