Thank you to our Premier Members for their commitment to advancing the future of open source 3D technology. O3DF Premier Members are true agents of change, recognized for their thought leadership and contributions to the O3DF.

"We’re proud to offer the 3D development community an unencumbered, AAA-capable, real-time 3D engine with one of the broadest arrays of integrated 3D authoring tools in the industry including a new photorealistic renderer, built for both modern gaming hardware and distributed cloud rendering. We believe that creating a first-class, community-driven, open source option will revolutionize real-time 3D development, as Linux did for operating systems and Apache did for the web."
