That calculus class you didn't want to take? That's how Xfrog store their models in a single page of text
Xfrog has been an industry leading company for more than 30 years. It has developed its unique software and created the largest database of botanically accurate 3D plant models in the world. We got the chance to ask the creators of Xfrog a couple of questions and delve a bit deeper into their work, which really boggles the mind: each leaf of their models has a different texture, a model has no polycount and can range from 3,000 to 3,000,000 polys, and, at the same time, is just a single page of text.
