I am currently playing around with the open-source Manta Ray tracer
developed by the Scientific Computing Institute (SCI) at the University
of Utah -
I have installed and compiled the Manta repository
- by following the instructions at
However, I am having problems importing a (.obj) model into Manta by
converting it into .v3c1* format
- as described in
I am unable to build the kd-tree as the build tool is not included in
the repository but is not available for download
- from the page at
Can anyone help ?
Thanks in advance

Why don’t you ask the Manta community this question? They would
certainly be better equipped to help you than we would.
I have emailed them and am awaiting a response. I was just wondering if
anyone had encountered the same problem and already solved it.
FYI : They replied that the kd-tree build tool is unavailable outside of
the commerical software licence, so unless you write your own version,
you can only render files in the .obj file format :(
