Schemers: Demo version of 3D Scheme for Windows from
Schemers Inc. publishes software and textbooks that promote the
use and advancement of Scheme in the educational and commercial
sectors. This directory contains a demo version of 3D Scheme for Windows.
3DScheme for Windows v1.0 is a Windows-based R4RS Scheme
interpreter incorporating over 450 geometrical Scheme primitives that
access Spatial Technology Inc's ACIS (R) Geometric Modeling Kernel,
the de facto industry standard in 3D modeling. The 3D modeling
- construction of solid bodies from blocks, cylinders, cone
frustums, spheres, and toruses.
- construction of wire-bodies from straight, circular,
elliptical, Bezier, and spline edges.
- construction of solids by extruding planar faces or
profiles along a vector or revolving about an axis.
- application of rigid transformations, uniform scaling, and
- intersect, trim, fillet, and chain edges.
- simultaneous views of solids from several different angles.
- dynamically accepted event-driven input for picking,
rubber banding, or dragging.
- rendering of solids using flat or Gouraud technology and
configurable refinements, materials, texture spaces, and
- saving and loading collections of solid and wire entities
from disk in .sat format.
- outputting rendered images as high resolution bitmaps or
3DScheme is seamlessly integrated with the WinScheme Editor.
3DScheme also ships with the "Getting Started with Scheme" book.
3DScheme for Windows retails for $495. (Note: The WinScheme Editor
is integrated into 3DScheme and does not need to be ordered separately.)
