Quesa Logo


Quesa is a high level 3D graphics library, released as Open Source under the LGPL, which offers binary and source level compatibility with Apple's QuickDraw™ 3D API. Quesa does not contain any Apple source code, and was developed without access to Apple's QD3D implementation.

QD3D supports both retained and immediate mode rendering, an extensible file format, plug-in renderers, a wide range of high level geometries, hierarchical models, and a consistent and object-orientated API.

Quesa acts as a scene-graph on top of lower-level APIs such as OpenGL or Direct 3D.

What platforms does Quesa support?

Quesa currently supports Mac OS 8/9, Mac OS X, Linux, Windows, and Be. Images of Quesa running on various platforms can be found on the screenshots page.

How do you pronounce Quesa?

Quesa is pronounced kes-ah. Think Quesadilla, without the dia.
