Ab4d.SharpEngine

Ab4d.SharpEngine is a cross-platform Vulkan based 3D rendering engine for desktop and mobile .Net applications.

Vulkan is a high performance graphics and cross-platform API that is similar to DirectX 12 but can run on multiple platforms.

The following features are supported by the current version:

  • Using any coordinate system (y-up or z-up, right-handed or left-handed)
  • Core SharpEngine objects (Scene, SceneView)
  • Many SceneNode objects (ported most of 3D objects from Ab3d.PowerToys)
  • Object instancing (InstancedMeshNode)
  • Cameras: TargetPositionCamera, FirstPersonCamera, FreeCamera, MatrixCamera
  • Lights: AmbientLight, DirectionalLight, PointLight, SpotLight, CameraLight
  • Effects: StandardEffect, SolidColorEffect, VertexColorEffect, ThickLineEffect
  • ReaderObj to read 3D models from obj files
  • Assimp importer that uses third-party library to import 3D models from almost any file format
