The 3D Systems PHANTOM haptic device has been fully integrated into VIZARD, the rising star in the 3D graphics industry by WorldViz ( that enables you to almost instantly build interactive simulations and virtual reality content, now including the sense of touch. VIZARD supports the 3D Systems OpenHaptics™ toolkit and exposes it through Python, an incredibly easy-to-use language that lets you create interesting haptic simulations with surprisingly little coding. The powerful combination of the OpenHaptics toolkit and VIZARD rockets you into position for rapidly creating any number of applications, including 3D design and modeling, medical, games, entertainment, visualization, and simulation. 

What is VIZARD?

Vizard is a high level graphics toolkit for the development of high-performance graphics applications, including virtual reality, scientific visualization, games, and flight simulation. By providing an object-oriented framework enveloping OpenGL, DirectX multimedia, human bipeds, display and peripheral hardware management, and efficient networking, Vizard frees users from low-level programming, letting one instead concentrate on creating interaction and content. In addition, by building upon Vizard's abstraction layer, projects are instantly upward compatible with future advances in all the underlying components.
