Can BRL-CAD be integrated into Visual Basic

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I have a Visual Basic 6 program that is being used for a project and I am wondering if it is possible to integrate the BRL-CAD into the Visual Basic program.  Does BRL-CAD support OLE?

      Frankly, I don't think it's ever been attempted, but there's nothing inherint that should prevent a linkage to VB from working.  You can build DLLs for BRL-CAD under Studio that would then be used in VB, using something along the lines described at

      That would at least give you access to the geomtric services, ray tracing library facilities, numerics, etc.  If you give it a try, I'd be interested to hear how it goes.
