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:
“For us necessity is not as of old an image without us, with whom we can do warfare; it is a magic web woven through and through us, like that magnetic system of which modern science speaks, penetrating us with a network subtler than our subtlest nerves, yet bearing in it the central forces of the world.”
—Walter Pater (18391894)
“All that hoops are good for is to clean dirty shoes and keep fellows at a distance.”
—Samuel Richardson (16891761)
