PolyVox - The voxel management and manipulation library


This system is no longer under active development. For more details please see this blog post: http://www.volumesoffun.com/wrapping-up-polyvox-development-to-focus-on-cubiquity-2/

PolyVox is the core technology which lies behind our games. It is a fast, lightweight C++ library for the storage and processing of volumetric (voxel-based) environments. It has applications in both games and medical/scientific visualisation, and is released under the terms of the MIT license.

PolyVox is a relatively low-level library, and you will need experience in C++ and computer graphics/shaders to use it effectively. It is designed to be easily integrated into existing applications and is independent of your chosen graphics API. For more details please see this page on our website.
