Assimp is a portable and extensible library designed for reading various well-known 3D file formats. It provides APIs for C and C++ and several wrappers for other languages. It reads more than 20 different 3D file formats (including Collada, 3DS, OBJ, LWO, and X) into a straightforward, hierarchical in-memory data structure that can easily be read and processed by applications. Several post processing steps can be applied, such as normal and tangent computations, index buffer, and vertex cache optimization. The library supports complex multi-layer materials and skinned meshes with multiple animations. A Windows-based viewer utility is provided as an implementation reference.
The LogicBoxes API is a full-control set of programming interfaces that allow you and your resellers to develop your own Website and control panels and integrate them into LogicBoxes OrderBox. Every function of LogicBoxes OrderBox is exposed via the OrderBox API. You can duplicate any or all of the functionality at your end by integrating into the API. The API comes with a specification, client side kits, sample forms, sample code, and complete documentation. Integrating with the API is a breeze. The API is based on SOAP/WSDL. Client side kits are available in PHP, Perl, ASP.NET, and Java. Additionally, since the protocol is standards-based, the API is truly platform independent. Monitoring systems prevent API abuse and any denial of service attacks on the API servers. The API is scalable and secure.
