This project is not part of the GNU Project.

pyFormex is a program for generating, transforming and manipulating large
geometrical models of 3D structures by sequences of mathematical operations.
Thanks to a powerful (Python based) scripting language, pyFormex is very well
suited for the automated design of spatial structures. It provides a wide
range of operations on surface meshes, like STL type triangulated surfaces.
There are provisions to import medical scan images. pyFormex can also be used
as a pre- and post-processor for Finite Element analysis programs. Finally, it
might be used just for creating some nice graphics. Because the geometrical
models are built from a script, automation and creation of parametrized models
is a natural thing in pyFormex.

pyFormex now has a WebGL exporter
     posted by bverheg, Wed 13 Mar 2013 05:29:01 PM UTC - 0 replies

pyFormex can now directly export (most of) your current scene to a WebGL web page that makes your 3D scene viewable from a WebGL
enabled browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari).

You can even manipulate the model with your mouse: rotate, move, zoom. And you get some GUI elements where you can change attributes like color, transparency, visibility.

Check the example(s) at (if you have a conforming browser).
