Author's Description: Edit3D is an open source 3D vector graphics editor.
It is intended to design and simulate computer aided machining but also has reasonable polygon design abilities. A special feature is that it allows the user to trace over a background provided by a bitmap or video frame. This could be usefull in creating realistic game characters.
Only the source code is provided under the GNU GPL license and it is expected that the user will prune and modify the code to their particular application before compiling to their platform.
I have only used DOS under Windows98 and have failed to get it running under Linux yet.
It is written in C++ with heavy use of polymorthism, so it is not for the faint hearted.
I hope it is of some use to someone. Good luck.
I started in computers from an interest in digital electronics and don't trust anything if I can't see it's off switch. My first home built computer had a wopping 1K of RAM. Some of the young researchers where I work complain that their PC only has 1.5G of RAM! I'm interested in 3D simulations, computer aided machining, auto piolets for RC aircraft ... that sort of thing, etc.. I prefer DOS, but I also like platform independance, so some of my programming is switching to Java. For simulations, Allegro is still superior on my old machines. (View Profile)
