BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, path-tracing for realistic image synthesis, network distributed framebuffer support, and image and signal-processing tools.
VMD (Visual Molecular Dynamics) is designed for the visualization and analysis of biological systems such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipid bilayer assemblies, etc. It may be used to view more general molecules, as VMD can read standard Protein Data Bank (PDB) files and display the contained structure. VMD provides a wide variety of methods for rendering and coloring a molecule: simple points and lines, CPK spheres and cylinders, licorice bonds, backbone tubes and ribbons, cartoon drawings, and others. VMD can be used to animate and analyze the trajectory of a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. In particular, VMD can act as a graphical front end for an external MD program by displaying and animating a molecule undergoing simulation on a remote computer. VMD uses OpenGL and OpenGL Programmable Shading Language for high performance rendering of large structures.
zstar (z*) Networked 3D project is an extensible, distributed system for 3D application and game development, consisting of an abstract game client (similar in concept to the one that xpilot uses) and a game server to which players connect to play games against other players or alone. This framework should be suitable for FPS, VR, MUDs, or any application that requires 3D and networking. The Win32 version currently only runs under Cygwin.
The Chemistry Development Kit (CDK) is a library of Java classes for chemo-, bioinformatics, computational chemistry, and chemometrics. It provides important algorithms like substructure search, SMILES, Gasteiger charges, QSAR descriptor calculation, 3D structure generation, 2D layout and rendering, many IO formats, atom typing, and more.
WireFusion allows interactive, plug-in free, and very compact Java presentations and product simulations to be created for the Web. Development involves visually connecting preprogrammed objects or by coding in Java. Several add-ons are available, including a real-time 3D engine where textures can be replaced with interactive 2D presentations, an MPEG video player, a slide show viewer, and an MP3 player.
The 3D Stacked Horizontal Bar Graph provides versatile components so that Web authors and Java developers can easily build and publish dynamic and interactive bar graphs. There are multiple data access methods, including database binding, a file reader, and an HTML page reader. This component also provides the ability to interact with other page components.
