Android 3D Model Viewer Open Source

So finally I decided to publish my 3D model Viewer android app on the Google Play Market :)

This app is about drawing 3D objects in android using OpenGL ES 2.0; and its Open Source as my other projects, so people can either contribute, start a similar project based on that or just learn how to do it by looking at the source code.

Although there is already similar apps on the market and lots of 3D frameworks out there, neither of the published apps are Open Source.

So I wanted to learn how 3D works and I think the best way to understand how it works is by looking at how matrices transforms the objects in space and how pixels are drawn to the screen. Thats why this app does not use any third party framework.

So far the app serves as a model viewer, but I have some ideas of what can be done with the code; or as I prefer to think of it, mini-3D-framework.  So for example, I am thinking in creating my very first and simple mini-game and I want to do it in 3D as it is a matter I really like.

If you want to see whats this all about, please download the app to your android device and give it a try:
