Finding contact points between two different .stl files.

Post by anamika » Mon Mar 10, 2014 6:14 am

hello,

I have been using bullet library in my application.When i try to evaluate the contact points between two different .stl files i see btEmptyCollissionAlgorithm being called and i do not get any contact points,but theoretically i should get contact point.I have tried number of times by taking different origins of the two .stl but still i am not able to get any contact points between them.When i was analysing shapes like a box and a .stl file, btConvexConcaveCollisionAlgorithm and btConvexConvexAlgorithm was called and got the contact points too.
So,help me to understand how will i get to find the contact points between two different .stl files.
Any suggestion will be of great help.
