Meshes and Models

Understand what meshes and models are and their importance in VR.

We use meshes and models to shape the appearance of our VR experience. In this lesson, we’ll learn the composition of meshes and models and their application in our game.


On a higher level, meshes describe the shape of an object that the GPU renders. We can think of meshes as the skeleton or wireframe of an object. Meshes are made from triangulated or quadrangulated polygons. In graphics, meshes are used together with materials. Materials describe the appearance of the object’s surface.
