Archimedes Geo3D

Andreas Goebel offers software for interactive geometry in three dimensions that you can use to

  • construct points, lines, spheres, planes, triangles and many more objects
  • trace points, lines or circles to get locus lines or locus surfaces
  • drag objects and see the rest of the construction change accordingly
  • create your own macros

Currently an English language Windows beta version can be downloaded and evaluated for four weeks before purchase. Partially translated versions for Linux and Mac OS X are also available.
