Overview

K-3D version 0.4 featured a complete overhaul of the program's internal data structures, introducing new geometric primitives (points, patches, nurbs, and implicit surfaces, to name a few), and the Visualization Pipeline which enables powerful, flexible procedural modeling. Further, K-3D 0.4 included a complete separation of the user interface layer from the underlying implementation, making it possible for developers to embed K-3D in other applications and/or replace the "standard" K-3D user interface with "alternative" user interfaces, e.g. to support platform-specific toolkits or niche applications with specialized user interfaces.

In order to take advantage of these features and address long-standing limitations in the K-3D 0.4 user interface, K-3D 0.6 introduces the Next Generation User Interface, or NGUI, a modern graphical user interface carefully crafted to simplify use of the Visualization Pipeline and conform to good user interface design principles.
