Meshlet for babylonjs?

This will be a fun feature to implement for babylonjs :grin:, basically its nanite from unreal engine, cooler version of dynamic LOD.

That would be awesome! But we probably need to wait for Mesh shader support in WebGPU :confused:

Hmm it seems metal already has support for mesh shaders (Mesh Shaders and Meshlet Culling in Metal 3 – Metal by Example)

what are they waiting for??
They should add this bad boy now! :rofl::joy:

Hard agree! There is no way we can compete with native engines if they don’t give us the same toys haha

This is something I’d like to experiment.
But I have doubts on its use on the web nonetheless. Nanite/Meshlets make sense when you can stream a big quantity of data every second. On the web, you’ll need to deal with way more latency and a server that can stream specific datas in a potentially large mesh data base. Or many smaller files on the server but in either case, you’ll need tools to manage that.
Anyway, meshlet can help making automatic LOD and that’s a first step to try.
