JavaView - Interactive 3D Geometry and Visualization

JavaView is a 3D geometry viewer and a mathematical visualization software. The web-integration allows display of 3D geometries and interactive geometry experiments in any HTML document on the internet. JavaView also runs as application on local computers from a Unix or DOS command prompt. The open API of JavaView enables a smooth integration as 3D viewer and advanced visualization toolkit into commercial software like Mathematica and Maple.

JavaView-Light: this tiny version of JavaView is optimized for fast download and contains the viewer module only, without any dialogs, inspectors and geometry algorithms. The lite version is mainly used to display precomputed geometry models inside web pages.

Version 4.60 may safely be installed over preceeding version such v3.95 and 4.00, and we strongly suggest to upgrade. Especially users of Mathematica and Maple will benefit from the seriously improved compatibility of JVL v4.60.

Note: upgrade to JavaView 4.60 or later is required for 2016 registrations

Note: due to the limited support of Java in recent browsers, the applets on this site require severe security changes of your browser. Instead, we strongly suggest to install the standalone version of JavaView which allows to run all applets as standalone projects.
