An interactive viewer for three-dimensional chemical structures.
Over 10,000,000 page views! Jmol/JSmol is a molecular viewer for 3D chemical structures that runs in four independent modes: an HTML5-only web application utilizing jQuery, a Java applet, a stand-alone Java program (Jmol.jar), and a "headless" server-side component (JmolData.jar). Jmol can read many file types, including PDB, CIF, SDF, MOL, PyMOL PSE files, and Spartan files, as well as output from Gaussian, GAMESS, MOPAC, VASP, CRYSTAL, CASTEP, QuantumEspresso, VMD, and many other quantum chemistry programs. Files can be transferred directly from several databases, including RCSB, EDS, NCI, PubChem, and MaterialsProject. Multiple files can be loaded and compared. A rich scripting language and a well-developed web API allow easy customization of the user interface. Features include interactive animation and linear morphing. Jmol interfaces well with JSpecView for spectroscopy, JSME for 2D->3D conversion, POV-Ray for images, and CAD programs for 3D printing (VRML export).

A .NET wrapper for the Irrlicht Engine
The Irrlicht Lime is a .NET wrapper for the Irrlicht Engine. It wraps most of API available in native library, easily allowing you to use 2D/3D graphics in your app, written in C#, VB.NET or other .NET language. Currently Lime is being develop under Visual Studio 2010 with .NET Framework 4.0. It includes bunch of examples and IntelliSense documentation. Lime is not a distinct "engine", it is a wrapper with almost the same architecture witch native Irrlicht Engine has. You do not need to download/compile Irrlicht Engine, wrapper already has it and ready to be used straight from the box.
