VPython makes it easy even for novices to write Python programs that generate navigable real-time 3D animations. Starting with VPython 6, it is based on the cross-platform library wxPython, hence the project name VPython-wx. At vpython.org you will find extensive documentation, which is also included in the VPython installers. There you will also find links to the installers that are stored here at sourceforge.net.

To give an idea of how easy VPython is, the following two-line program generates a rotatable and zoomable 3D cube:

from visual import *

A related project is GlowScript (glowscript.org), which provides similar ease of use for JavaScript or CoffeeScript programs, which run in a browser.

The source code for VPython-wx is available at
