Hello-

I am a computer scientist with a strong background in computer graphics and a working knowledge of programming language design. I wanted to try my hand at coding my own 3D engine. I was wondering what advice the group had to a complete beginner. Where can I find out what other engines do? Are there tutorials for building your first engine? Thanks for your help.

Eric

If you want to look at some good, professional 3D engine source, id Software just released the Quake 1 source under the GNU Public License. You could check that out. Or you could look at the Genesis 3D engine at http://www.genesis3d.com which is a pretty nice, relatively free 3D engine also.

http://cg.cs.tu-berlin.de/~ki/engines.html is a gigantic 3d engine list that contains every engine I've ever heard of. You can sort it by which projects are source code available if you want to sneak a peak at someone elses code.
