vedo is a fast and lightweight python module for scientific analysis and visualization of 3d objects.

Not limited to 3d, vedo can also generate high quality renderings in 2d (scatter plots, histograms etc).

Inspired by the vpython manifesto “3D programming for ordinary mortals”, vedo makes it easy to work wth three-dimensional objects, create displays and animations in just a few lines of code, even for less experienced programmers.

vedo is based on VTK and numpy, with no other dependencies.
