VISUAL ENGINEERING LAUNCHES UNIX 3D PACKAGE CONFORMING TO GKS, ISO, ANSI

By CBR Staff Writer

The Unix-based graphics software house, Visual Engineering, has announced a three-dimensional graphics library package, Visual:3D. The company claims that this is one of the first 3D modelling toolkits designed specifically for Unix systems. Visual:3D is based on the accepted GKS standard but Visual says that it has gone further in anticipating the ISO and ANSI standard and included issues included in the current proposed three dimensional GKS extension. The modular package is intended for applications developers who intend programs to be ported between dedicated graphics workstations and multi-user systems. The package is currently in beta test sites and shipments will start in early March. Visual:3D will sell for between $1,500 and $8,000 depending on the system configuration.
