Crate ncollide2d[][src]

ncollide

ncollide is a 2 and 3-dimensional collision detection library written with the rust programming language.

As its name suggests, it is generic wrt the dimension: it works with both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes. It might work with higher dimensions (never tried).

The official user guide is available here. The rustdoc documentation is available here.

Compilation

You will need the last stable build of the rust compiler and the official package manager: cargo.

Simply add the following to your Cargo.toml file:

This example is not tested
[dependencies]
ncollide = "0.13"

Features

  • dynamic bounding volume tree based broad phase
  • ball vs. ball collision detection,
  • plane vs. any convex object collision detection.
  • collision detection between arbitrary convex objects
  • compound shapes
  • ray-casting
  • time of impact computation for objects without rotational movement (compound vs. compound is not yet implemented)

And various traits for collision detectors and broad phase collision detection.
