Python and 3D

P: n/a
Hi,

I am looking for Python modules that allow you to manipulate 3D
objects, more specifically Alias Wavefront .OBJ objects.
Also, a module that would allow you to vizualize these models and
rotate them etc..

The goal is not to build a new renderer or something; just a small
program that I need to do some manipulations in bulk on a set of OBJs

Any help much appreciated

I'm not aware of anything. You might look at pyOpenGL or pyglet. They
should be good for 3D modeling at least.

What do you mean by "manipulate". There are lots of ways to
manipulate 3D objects; can you be more specific?
