I'm new to this area, so pardon me if this is a FAQ. I'm interested in
developing navigational applications for the Mac which use 3D and perform
*quickly*. Real-time is not a necessity but would be very desirable.
I'm aware of certain CAD applications (like Sketch!) which enable
sophisticated 3D drawing and rendering, but I have yet to come across a
set of libraries that I could use from my own Mac application. Any comments
or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Also, I was wondering if there are any preferred "standards" for storing
three-dimensional data (DXF, perhaps?). It seems it would vary depending
upon the kind of 3D data that is represented (wire-frame images vs. terrain
descriptions vs. what-have-you), so any references to descriptions of such
preferred formats would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
