NFF Parser Example

NFF 3D File Viewer [2004]
3D model and scene viewer based on the now deprecated NFF WorldToolKit 3D scene description files. It supports only wire frame and flat shaded monochromatic renders. Since there are plenty of great 3D model parsers in the world, I am no longer working to improve this program. Included in the source code files (Windows C++)are a few NFF files. The read me file contains the scene navigation controls (mouse dragging and keys).
