3D Without Boundaries
VirtualGL redirects 3D commands from a Unix/Linux OpenGL application onto a server-side GPU and converts the rendered 3D images into a video stream with which remote clients can interact to view and control the 3D application in real time.
The OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library is a simple tool that helps C/C++ developers initialize extensions and write portable applications. GLEW currently supports a variety of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Darwin, Irix, and Solaris.
A free OpenGL utility toolkit, the open-sourced alternative to the GLUT library.

BRL-CAD is a powerful cross-platform constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing for rendering & geometric analyses, network distributed framebuffer support, image & signal-processing tools.
The Pure Data (short Pd) project on SourceForge unifies the extensions (or externals) written for the Pure Data Graphical Computer Music System written by Miller Puckette with contributions from many others.
PyMOL is an OpenGL based molecular visualization system
PyMOL is a Python-enhanced molecular graphics tool. It excels at 3D visualization of proteins, small molecules, density, surfaces, and trajectories. It also includes molecular editing, ray tracing, and movies. Open Source PyMOL is free to everyone!
A project that has moved to GitHub
GLFW is an Open Source, multi-platform library for creating windows with OpenGL contexts and receiving input and events. It is easy to integrate into existing applications and does not lay claim to the main loop. GLFW has moved to GitHub: https://github.com/glfw
FreeWRL is an Open Source, cross platform VRML2 and X3D compliant browser, with script, SAI and EAI support. Platforms supported: Linux and other Unix-style platforms; Mac OS/X; Windows. Support for mobile platforms (iOS, Android, QNX) is under development.
Utility application to obtain data about your OpenGL implementation.
OpenGLChecker is a fast and smooth program that retrieves relevant information about your OpenGL implementation. It can also test your computer's performance with fully scripted benchmarks. This allows you to write your own benchmark scripts for testing your OpenGL performance.
GtkGLExt is an OpenGL extension to GTK+. It provides additional GDK objects which support OpenGL rendering in GTK+, and GtkWidget API add-ons to make GTK+ widgets OpenGL-capable.
Pixie is a photorealistic renderer that uses a RenderMan-like interface. Features include programmable shading, motion blur, depth of field, raytracing, scan-line rendering, occlusion culling, global illumination, caustics ...
CsGL is OpenGL for the .Net Framework, providing support for OpenGL 1.1 - 1.4 and numerous extensions.
Space Invaders OpenGL is a 2D/3D clone of Space Invaders developed with the OpenGL API. The host language is C/C++, and the OS platform Windows. For Windows Vista/Seven, the program must be "Run as administrator". I'll do a fix if I have time. Thanks.
Cross-platform 2D and 3D game engine
Urho3D is a free lightweight, cross-platform 2D and 3D game engine implemented in C++ and released under the MIT license. Greatly inspired by OGRE and Horde3D.
LDraw™ editor for LEGO® style digital building instructions.
LPub3D is an Open Source WYSIWYG editing application for creating LEGO® style digital building instructions. LPub3D is developed and maintained by Trevor SANDY. It uses the LDraw™ parts library, the most comprehensive library of digital Open Source LEGO® bricks available (www.ldraw.org/ ) and reads the LDraw LDR and MPD model file formats. LPub3D is available for free under the GNU Public License v3 and runs on Windows, Linux and macOS Operating Systems. LPub3D is also available as a Linux 'no-install', multi-platform AppImage. Portions of LPub3D are based on LPUB© 2007-2009 Kevin Clague, LeoCAD© 2018 Leonardo Zide.and additional third party components.

Renderer for flam3 cosmic recursive fractal flames implemented on GPU. Requires a CUDA-capable graphics card.
An implementation of the OpenGL API.
an interactive 3D viewing program
Geomview is an interactive 3D viewing program for Unix. Geomview lets you view and manipulate three- and higher-dimensional objects, and can also be used as a display engine by other programs to animate objects. Geomview supports OpenGL and uses a Motif X interface.
Project closed ! Please use JOGL. http://jogamp.org OpenGL[tm] for Java[tm], formerly known as GL4Java, supports Java with a native OpenGL mapping. The OS native OpenGL functionality is avaiable from
Ayam is a free 3D modelling environment for the RenderMan interface.
GLE is a library of C functions that draw extruded surfaces, including surfaces of revolution, sweeps, tubes, polycones, polycylinders and helicoids. GLE uses the OpenGL(R) API to perform the actual rendering.
Earth orbits and coverage display in 3D on your laptop.
SaVi - simulate Iridium, Globalstar, O3b, Sirius Radio, GPS, Galileo and other satellite constellations, modify them, or design your own. Uses Tcl/Tk and Unix libraries; 3D viewing option requires Geomview running on X Window.
UPDATE: Chromium is no longer updated or maintained. The project is frozen. Chromium is a flexible framework for scalable real-time rendering on clusters of workstations, derived from the Stanford WireGL project code base.
Explore procedural worlds on your GPU. Worlds are defined by GLSL programs that map XYZ coordinates to the distance to the nearest surface. Design your own worlds, modify parameters in realtime and render hires videos of your recorded journey.
