java -jar RayTracer.jar model.obj
It works by having all triangles stored in a bounded volume hierarchy, so only a part of the mesh needs to be tested againstrays, instead of every triangle.

I am curious personally about if this could be used to draw maps? Also raytracing is starting being used in game experiments such as Quake Wars: Raytraced. I am curious about when computers will be powerful enough to run high-quality raytracing at 60 FPS...

Have you tried to run it from the commandline? Code: [Select]java -jar RayTracer.jar
