You mean an application that includes all 3D functions? You would need a 3D graphics API like OpenGL or DirectX.

There are several APIs built over these(at least over OpenGL) that simplifies a lot of things. For eg: OpenSceneGraph.

So, you would basically need a good 3D API.

Hi myk,
Yes I need 3D and click event functions . My question is if I install OpenGL or Directx or other API in Windows 7 then does C++ compiler required for AutoCad like Application development ?

>>Yes I need 3D and click event functions

The 3D APIs i mentioned provide the 3D functionality. For user interaction, you would need to use OS specific features. There are cross platform window management tools available too(like glut).

>> if I install OpenGL or Directx or other API in Windows 7

There is a version of OpenGL already present on Windows 7. You can start development with that, but it's deprecated.

Did you mean what compiler you can use? You can use any good modern compiler like VC++.
