SX is a graphical 3D object modeller implemented in Scheme. The program can create, edit, modify any geometry consisting points, one dimensional elements (links), triangles, quadrilaterals, tetrahedrons and blocks. Several operations on the objects have already been implemented and there are several operations which will be implemented as they are required. Lots of the features of the program or handling of the geometric model follow some of the features found in AutoCAD. (AutoCAD is a registered trademark of Autodesk). However This program is not an AutoCAD replica. The reason to "borrow" some features from AutoCAD is that I liked AutoCAD, but they discontinued the UNIX version of it somewhere around version 12. (If there is an AutoCAD for Unix then this program would never exist.)

The program was originally developed in GNU guile, then it was ported to Bigloo. The current version is developed in PLT-Scheme so the program is available on Unix and Windows systems.

Older versions for guile and bigloo are also available.
