Claudette v0.1 by Fougue Ltd, fork of

ColDet - 3D Collision Detection Library
Copyright (C) 2000 Amir Geva


ColDet is a 3D collision detection library, intended for games.
It supports generic polyhedra, and even polygon soups.

As ColDet is no longer actively maintained, Fougue decided to fork the project to keep it up to date :

  • ensure source code builds with recent C/C++ compilers
  • use GitHub as main project infrastructure


It is written in standard C++ and can be compiled on Windows or GNU/Linux systems

Other systems that have g++ will probably compile with no modification.
The code is portable to any system with a standard C++ compliant compiler (as compliant as they get)


Claudette can be built with CMake, by default a shared library is generated.

  1. For an out-of-source build, create a directory where the build will take place (say build)
  2. Call cmake, passing as argument the directory where is located CMakeLists.txt
  3. (n)make
  4. (n)make install

Read CMakeLists.txt to figure out how to build debug and release libraries.
