Not likely from me, considering I know nothing about OpenGL, C,
assembly language, or anything that would be necessary to embark
on such a project. It's really depressing, considering that
Autodesk software is the only software I use that is only available
on Windows and does not have an equivalent open-source replacement.
Obviously, Pro-E, Catia, Unigraphics, etc. are available for various
flavors of Unix or Linux, but my employer has myself and my colleagues
locked into Autodesk products.
