These developer tool kits provide extensive 3D graphics capabilities to VB via DLL API interfaces, VBX and OCX/ActiveX controls.
BBGenX is an an ActiveX (OCX) control designed for use with Eclipse Entertainment's Genesis3D game engine. The Genesis API was designed with the C/C++ coder in mind. BBGenX, however, allows Genesis3D functions to be called from ActiveX/OLE Automation enabled applications such as Visual Basic.

|Global Majic Software - 3DLinx|
3DLinX is a revolution in 3D software application development. The 3DLinX programming environment is the first to bring easy to program, realistic 3D applications to the Windows PC platform. 3DLinX is easy to use and reduces typical 3D application development time by over 80%. By encapsulating numerous complex concepts such as graphics APIs, scene graph management, view culling, collision detection, 3DLinX eliminates the majority of the learning curve traditionally necessary for developing 3D applications and allows developers to spend more time on creating their application, and less time on how to program it.
