Simple 3D support

Hi all,

I've been working lately on 3d visualization for my own need and maybe the result may have some interest for some of you. I know there is already mlab/mayavi2/vtk that does a great job, but after having spent a lot of time trying to install all requirements, I headed for a very fast, simple and dedicated solution. Currently, scigl (this is the name of the framework) dependencies are restricted to OpenGL, GLUT, GLEW and Boost (for python export).

You can find a beta version at http://www.loria.fr/~rougier/scigl/index.html and the mandatory screenshots are available at http://www.loria.fr/~rougier/scigl/screenshots.html.

This looks interesting. What platform are you using? How hard was the installation and what problems, if any, did you run into? And their fixes? Thanks for the info.

I tried installing mayavi on macos some months ago but I do not remember
exactly what were the problems. I know that I ended recompiling vtk from
sources and it did not work for some reason. The EPD bundle did not work
because (I think) of some conflicts between installed python version
(macpython and python from darwin ports) and the egg did not compile at
all. I tried today the last EPD on a fresh leopard install and it seems
to be working now.
