APIs are provided for C and C++. There are various bindings to other languages (C#, Java, Python, Delphi, D). Assimp also runs on Android and iOS.

[Check the latest doc](https://assimp-docs.readthedocs.io/en/latest/).

Additionally, assimp features various __mesh post processing tools__: normals and tangent space generation, triangulation, vertex cache locality optimization, removal of degenerate primitives and duplicate vertices, sorting by primitive type, merging of redundant materials and many more.

This is the development repo containing the latest features and bugfixes. For productive use though, we recommend one of the stable releases available from [Github Assimp Releases](https://github.com/assimp/assimp/releases).

### Building ###
Take a look into the https://github.com/assimp/assimp/blob/master/Build.md file. Our build system is CMake, if you used CMake before there is a good chance you know what to do.

### Ports ###
* [Android](port/AndroidJNI/README.md)
* [Python](port/PyAssimp/README.md)
* [.NET](https://github.com/kebby/assimp-net)
* [Pascal](port/AssimpPascal/Readme.md)

* [HAXE-Port](https://github.com/longde123/assimp-haxe) The Assimp-HAXE-port.

### Other tools ###
[open3mod](https://github.com/acgessler/open3mod) is a powerful 3D model viewer based on Assimp's import and export abilities.

#### Repository structure ####
Open Asset Import Library is implemented in C++. The directory structure looks like:

	/code		Source code
	/contrib	Third-party libraries
	/doc		Documentation (doxysource and pre-compiled docs)
	/include	Public header C and C++ header files
	/scripts 	Scripts used to generate the loading code for some formats
	/port		Ports to other languages and scripts to maintain those.
	/test		Unit- and regression tests, test suite of models
	/tools		Tools (old assimp viewer, command line `assimp`)
	/samples	A small number of samples to illustrate possible
                        use cases for Assimp

The source code is organized in the following way:

	code/Common		The base implementation for importers and the infrastructure
	code/PostProcessing	The post-processing steps
	code/<FormatName>	Implementation for import and export for the format

### Where to get help ###
For more information, visit [our website](http://assimp.org/). Or check out the `./doc`- folder, which contains the official documentation in HTML format.
(CHMs for Windows are included in some release packages and should be located right here in the root folder).

If the docs don't solve your problem, ask on [StackOverflow](http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/assimp?sort=newest). If you think you found a bug, please open an issue on Github.

For development discussions, there is also a (very low-volume) mailing list, _assimp-discussions_
  [(subscribe here)]( https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/assimp-discussions)

Open Asset Import Library is a library to load various 3d file formats into a shared, in-memory format. It supports more than __40 file formats__ for import and a growing selection of file formats for export.
