Description: LightWave 3D objects are stored on disk as 3D meshes consistsing of points, polygons (which can be faces, curves or patches), and surfaces. Files can contain a single connected mesh or several disjoint meshes describing a single logical object. An object file may also contain one or more surface definitions with no mesh.
