3D Stuff for Adobe Flash

In the last months everyone noticed that everyday, new components and frameworks on 3D have been developed and released to the Flash community. I’m writing this article, because even me that check everyday lots of posts and articles in the Internet, start to be lost in the middle of lot’s of information and new resources available. So, i decide to make a list with all the available 3D tools for Flash. If I’ve missed some of them, i would be glad to add them to this list, just drop me a comment.

2.5D AS3 Isometric Engines

3D Engines

3D Game Engines

3D Vector Engine

3D Physics Engine

3D Flash Components

3D Animation Framework

3D Modelers

    Hi Jan,

    Tnx for yr comment, although bear in mind that the APE is 2D Physics Engine, not 3D, that’s why i’ve not mentioned it on this list.

    Hi Carlos,
    Thank you for this and many other interesting postings on your site. Your site is a great resource for the Flash community. The pictures of the surfaces above that head this article come from our Flash 3D tutorial at Flash and Math:

    It is one of many Flash 3D tutorials at Flash and Math.
    With best wishes,

    Hi Barbara,

    You are right.

    I haven’t mentioned the 3D tutorials from Flash and Math, just because it wasn’t the point of this article. Although, as you may noticed, i’ve presented and posted for several times your great tutorials.

    Flash isn’t a proper 3D engine (even Flash 10) and therefor every 3D application will be slow or very small. There are some proper engines but the use of them is still very small. Like 3dmlw, Flux or WireFusion (java 🙁 ).
