3D graphics library whose API is based on the Open Inventor API
Coin is a platform-independent retained-mode 3D graphics library that uses scene-graph data structures to render real-time graphics+suitable for mostly all kinds of scientific and engineering visualization applications. It is fully compatible with Open Inventor 2.1. Coin is built on the OpenGL immediate-mode rendering library, adds abstractions for higher-level primitives, provides 3D interactivity, increases programmer convenience and productivity, and contains optimization features for fast +rendering that are transparent for the application programmer.
