I have a 3d city model that is a collada file which consist of many triangles. When I select the model in a 3d software all buildings are selected. But I want every building to be selectable separately, is it possible? Are there any methods or algorithms that define which triangles belong to a building in a 3d model that consist many buildings and triangles?

  • $\begingroup$ Do the buildings have any properties that would help distinguish them? Are they disconnected items, or is the city a single connected mesh with the buildings rising from a plane? $\endgroup$ – trichoplax Aug 22 '16 at 15:35

    $\begingroup$ It's worth editing to include that in your description. $\endgroup$ – trichoplax Aug 22 '16 at 17:55

    $\begingroup$ Then it really depends on the buildings. Are all your buildings just cubes? Or at least convex? And is the ground plane really just a plane or has it terrain? $\endgroup$ – Dragonseel Aug 23 '16 at 10:32
