I am excited about Qt3D providing the tools to help solve a problem to help visualize underground utilities such as water pipes and telephone cables.


1) The bigscene example in Qt 5.5 Alpha is a helpful starting point for me to understand Qt3D and use it to draw a string of pipes using QCylinderMesh entities.  If I could figure out how to build Qt 5.5 Alpha for Android (on OS X),  would bigscene be expected to run on Android?

2) Can I add a Qt3D window to an existing Qt widget form?  I am using widgets; no qml.  I want to let users adjust locations of QCylinderMesh entities representing underground pipes and obstacles.  Basically a CAE app.


1) On OS X 10.10 a Macbook Pro 15” 2880 x 1800 Retina display, Qt3D render displays in the bottom-left 1/4 section of the window.  When windows is dragged to an external HD resolution monitor, it displays perfectly.  Any ideas?

If this is not the proper place for Qt3D please redirect me.  This is my first time positing.  Qt3D looks like a great potential solution to my work.
