Best 3d graphics kit for CAD program???


R

rantingrick

I want to build a 3D CAD visualization program with Python. Now before
you say this is not possible with Python here me out :)

I know OpenGL is probably my best bet BUT i want something a little
higher level than that. I am not ready for OpenGL yet. I would like a
kit that is just above OpenGL and abstracts away all the finer
details, but not too much higher. VPython is a great kit but it is way
too high level for what i want. Here is a list of kits i am currently
looking at so if anybody can offer suggestions i would very much like
the information. Most of these are dedicated game engines but this is
all i can find

Panda 3D
OGRE
Soya 3D
VTK
Cystal Space
CG Kit
SciPy

Thanks Guy's

Understood. I too prefer text only, but mistakenly hit "HTML only" for
that email. Once sent, though, there was no way to recall and fix it.

Maya ?
Blender ?
I forgot:
pySoy
Intensity

Thanks Stef,
I actually got OpenGL to install(finally) and now i am thinking ?
maybe? i should just go with OpenGL using the wxglcanvas. I have been
also "messing" around with Bender but i think i want a stand alone
application here. I don't know anything about Maya however?

Thanks for the info and feel free to offer more.

Hi,

Have you considered OpenCascade:
http://www.opencascade.org/

Along with its python bindings, it might be a good alternative:
http://www.pythonocc.org/

Just a thought,
Duane

OpenCascade looks promising. I had look at this before a while back
and forgot about it. For now i am taking the OpenGL plunge and I will
see where that takes me...?

Thanks Duane
