Build successfull on Arch Linux (Antergos) x64 Working my way through the Introduction_to_MGED.pdf


Successfully calculated mass of a copper sphere using rtweight.


Diving into the source code of rtweight. I will need some help understanding the overall structure of the repository and some details about rtweight.


Proposed an initial model of representation. I would use a three-variable function that returns the density of the material at a certain point in space. Integrating this function over the boundaries of the object yields it's mass. Example can be found here:


Started working on the example raytrace application. I am setting highest priority to understanding the basic behaviour of this little program, as I know it is the foundation I will need in order to continue with the project.

I will try to modify it in some ways and see if I break it.

From today onwards, I will be working from 15:00 to 22:00 most days, and from 10:00 to 13:00 as well a few days a week. After evaluating how much can be done with this schedule, adjustments will be made accodingly.


Drafted an example of how to obtain a function that returns the density a ray sees at it crosses the object.


Reading through, understanding and compiling the example applications.
