Despite it's name, this is not a real .a/.so library.

Why no wdune sponsoring ?


Are there any tips how to get wdune fedora sponsoring ?

The result can be shown in any webgl enabled web browser or can be
converted to the RIB format for movie creation.

The 3D Modelling features are NURBS, Subdivison, Extrude face,
convex hull, skin and bones (via the HAnim X3D nodes),
Constructive Solid Geometry and Superformu
