Geometry - Visualization links

  1. Blender, a very advanced 3D computer animation package. MakeHuman is a plug-in for Blender, to model and move human figures.
  2. SOLID is a software library for collision detection of geometric objects in 3D space.
    Other collision detection packages.
  3. The FastGEO, “is a library that contains a wide range of highly optimized computational geometry algorithms and routines for many different types of geometrical operations such as geometrical primitives and predicates, hull construction, triangulation, clipping, rotations and projections.”
  4. SciCraft, a data analysis framework, with GUI. Works, for example, with Octave and R.
  5. GtkDataBox, a GTK library for very fast plotting widgets, such as for oscilloscope data.
  6. CGAL, the Computational Geometry Algorithms Library.
  7. Mayavi, and Visualisation Toolkit (VTK), for 3D data visualisation.
  8. Virtual Object System, a 3D virtual reality infrastructrure software.
  9. OpenDX, "for the visualization of scientific, engineering and analytical data: Its open system design is built on a standard interface environments. And its sophisticated data model provides users with great flexibility in creating visualizations."
  10. libQGLViewer, a library to make 3D OpenGL stuff, with already lots of robotics-related functionality, such as keyframes.
  11. Maverik (Virtual Reality toolkit)
  12. Coin3D (free software Open Inventor clone).
  13. GeomView (open source 3D modeller).
  14. Dune . Dune is a simple 3D modelling and animation tool for the authoring of VRML (Virtual Reality Modelling Language).
  15. FreeWRL and OpenVRML: VRML viewers.
  16. Open Scene Graph, a "open source high performance 3D graphics toolkit, used by application developers in fields such as visual simulation, games, virtual reality, scientific visualization and modelling."
  17. Qilex, a simple robot simulator.
