A simple 3D framework in C++
A simple 3D framework in C++ that supports OpenGL, OpenAL and GLUT.
This is a very simple OpenGL visualization library with a 3D and 4D volume renderer. It can easily be reused in other projects (e.g. with medical volumes). It is just perfect for learning or great if you like to hack your own code.

A generic hierarchical file format. BHM can be seen as the binary equivalent of XML. It allows flexible hierarchies of any type of data, in a platform-independent way. BHM however trades XML's readability for compactness and speed of processing.
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.
QuteScoop is a platform-independent status indicator for VATSIM. It's available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
for the latest release see either - https://github.com/OGRECave/ogre - https://bitbucket.org/sinbad/ogre/ An efficient, object-oriented hardware accelerated 3D engine. It abstracts the differences between APIs and platforms and allows scene-oriented coding through an easy to use object model. Adaptable to multiple scene types (indoor, outdoor, whatever)
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.
Coin3D Qt GUI Library
SoQt is a library used with Coin3D Open Inventor for interfacing with the Qt API on Microsoft Windows, Max OS and Linux platforms.
Coin3D Xt GUI Library
SoXt is a library used with Coin3D Open Inventor for interfacing with the Xt API on Linux and Unix platforms.
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.
ViSTA is a software platform that allows integration of VR technology and interactive, 3D visualization into technical and scientific applications. ViSTA FlowLib combines rendering techniques for the exploration of unsteady flows in virtual environments.
OpenSG is a scenegraph system for realtime rendering. Besides good performance our goals are easy multithreading support, portability, and a very extendable system.
Galaxy extraterrestrial life simulation
EtiC is a galaxy simulation software that generates and renders a mock galaxy for rational estimation of the number of extraterrestrial civilizations. Stars and planets are simulated with plausible physical characteristics, based on user-adjustable parameters. An EtiC simulation run consists to generate a galaxy disk physical stars, associate planets to the stars, and for habitable planets, simulate the life stages evolution until extinction. A visual animation of the galaxy and user selection of highlighted star-planet objects is provided, together with statistics (25+ graphs) and estimates of Drake equation factors. The V2_1 provides several new features: planets surface magnetic field, reworked life stage transitions, integration of MW exoplanets catalog, planets view and graphs window optionally on different threads... EtiC is based on OpenGL / GLFW 3.2, runs on MSWindows 7 and MacOsX. Source code in C++, was developped using the Dev-C++ IDE and XCode.
VoxRend is an OpenSource voxel graphic engine. It can be used to create games or simulations, but you can use it to get other graphic representations. Uses tile-maps and can load and render Ken's VOX files. Today it's inactive but I have plans for the
Interactive 3D Layout Viewer for GDSII
GDS3D is a cross-platform 3D hardware accelerated viewer for chip layouts. Read standalone GDS files or use the Cadence plugin for easy integration with your Virtuoso environment.
