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:

    There are obvious places in which government can narrow the chasm between haves and have-nots. One is the public schools, which have been seen as the great leveler, the authentic melting pot. That, today, is nonsense. In his scathing study of the nation’s public school system entitled “Savage Inequalities,” Jonathan Kozol made manifest the truth: that we have a system that discriminates against the poor in everything from class size to curriculum.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    I have seen her smooth as a cheek.
    I have seen her easy,
    doing her business,
    lapping in.
    I have seen her rolling her hoops of blue.
    I have seen her tear the land off.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
