#StackBounty: #3d #gpu Efficient operations on polyhedra

Bounty: 100

I currently perform several operations on polyhedra with cgal. These operations include

  • Union of two or more polyhedra
  • Difference of two or more polyhedra
  • Intersection of two or more polyhedra
  • Cutting Plane
  • Ray intersection with polyhedra

and some more.

The polyhedra are not necessarily convex, but are otherwise simple (i.e. non-selfintersecting)

I am now trying to find a way to hardware-accelerate these operations for speed efficiency reasons and thought, that GPUs might be capable to handle this task. However, most interfaces (i.e. OpenGL) I have seen focus on rendering.

Is there a good interface for performing these calculations with GPU support and retrieving the result subsequently?
