What is GeeXLab?
GeeXLab (or GXL) is a new tool for fast real time 3D prototyping and coding. It's based on widely used standards such as XML, Lua, Python or OpenGL. GeeXLab has been designed for developers (from newbies to confirmed) and technical 3D artists.
GeeXLab is particularly well suited to quickly create and prototype real time 3D solutions: demos, benchmarks, little applications or games. It's also a fantastic tool to start learning programming and real time 3D programming.
GeeXLab can be used as a sandbox for your real time 3D experimentations.
A more detailed presentation of GeeXLab is available here: GeeXLab: Laboratory for Real Time 3D Learning and Experiments.
GeeXLab is available in two editions: Free and Pro. GeeXLab Free is only intended for home and non-commercial use. It is provided free of charge, but its functionalities are limited (don't panic, these limitations are very small!). If you are you looking for more features, functionalities and flexibility that the Free Edition does not offer, upgrade to the Pro Edition.
The SDK (Software Development Kit) of GeeXLab's engine is also available for people wishing to integrate GeeXLab engine in their applications.
