HOOPS 3D Graphics System

HOOPS 3D Graphics System

The HOOPS 3D Graphics System is a proprietary, closed source 3D graphics API designed for the engineering software industry. The HOOPS 3D Graphics System is now part of HOOPS Visualize, a high-level 3D graphics SDK. HOOPS Visualize is notable for its general purpose nature. For example, unlike a game engine, which is optimized for frame rate over a limited dataset, HOOPS Visualize attempts to provide a visually precise, interactive environment for a wide variety of datasets.

HOOPS Visualize supports common operations for engineering applications, such as dimensioning, computation of geometric volumes and areas, and advanced rendering modes. However, Visualize is not a modeling tool and has limited animation capabilities.

It is one of the longest-running APIs of its kind still under active development.

Famous quotes containing the words system and/or hoops:

    Fear, coercion, punishment, are the masculine remedies for moral weakness, but statistics show their failure for centuries. Why not change the system and try the education of the moral and intellectual faculties, cheerful surroundings, inspiring influences? Everything in our present system tends to lower the physical vitality, the self-respect, the moral tone, and to harden instead of reforming the criminal.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    Since to the awe of thy imperious wit
    Our troublesome language bends, made only fit
    With her tough thick-ribbed hoops to gird about
    Thy giant fancy, which had proved too stout
    For their soft melting phrases.
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)
