3DVCE
3DVCE combines a genetic algorithm (GA) with a physics engine and a 3D graphics engine. As the user, you have the ability to configure many aspects of this evolution, including the size of the population, the probabilities for mutation and crossover, various parameters that govern restrictions on creature bodies... etc. You also have some flexibility in specifying the "fitness" measure that will be applied to your population of creatures.

OpenSimulator is a 3D Application Server. It can be used to create a virtual environment (or world) which can be accessed through a variety of clients, on multiple protocols. OpenSimulator allows you to develop your environment using the technologies you feel work best - we've designed the software to be easily extendable through loadable modules to build completely custom configurations. OpenSimulator is released under a BSD License, making it both open source, and commercially friendly to embed in products.

Out of the box, OpenSimulator can be used to simulate a virtual environment similar to Second Life™ (including client compatibility). Other environments, protocols and features are supported via add on modules.

Javascript 3D Engine
Currently the engine only supports particles and triangles/quads with flat colors. The aim is to keep the code as simple and modular as possible. At the moment the engine can render using canvas and svg.

Grasshopper - generative modeling for Rhino
For designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms, Grasshopper® is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.

O3D Technical Overview - O3D API - Google Code
O3D is an open-source JavaScript API for creating interactive 3D graphics applications that run in a browser window—games, ads, 3D model viewers, product demos, virtual worlds. O3D extends the client-side software of a web application by providing features at the following levels:
* System: O3D provides a browser plug-in that adds graphics capabilities inside standard web browsers on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux (TBP) platforms.
* Content: Content for today's web is in the form of HTML, image files, and video files. The Developer's Guide provides information on how to create a file converter and loader for any 3D content. O3D provides a sample COLLADA Converter, which can be used to import files in the COLLADA format, an open standard for 3D assets that is supported by popular content creation applications such as SketchUp, 3ds Max, and Maya. Use this sample converter directly, or write your own converter and loader for other formats.
* Code: O3D extends application JavaScript code with an API for 3D graphics. It uses standard JavaScript event processing and callback methods.
