Greetings to all! Its great to be a part of the forum. I was wondering if anyone could possibly tell me if i could write a wrapper for a 3D engine in Creative? And if so could you please give me an idea on which  api or library i would need. The particular one i have in mind is blender but as far as i know that only works with python. Thanks for any help you could give.

You say you want to write a wrapper (in CBasic) for a 3D library and want to know what API or library you should use.
???
To write a wrapper for a library you need the library you are writing the library for.

CBasic already has a set of 3D commands.

Maybe I'm just not understanding your question?

Hey there. Sorry if i confused you. The reason im mainly asking is i would like to start learning 3D design slowly and heard Blender was an excellent tool for 3D modelling but was unaware  i could use CBASIC! Awesome! I have read up a little on the direct3D but still need to study it a bit further. If its not to much to ask could you recommend where i should start learning about libraries? Thanks for the help

Larry's latest EBook, EBasic's Basics has a section on Dynamic Linked libraries.

EBasic is capable of creating both static libraries and dynamic linked libraries.

Libraries are nothng more than a collection of subroutines that you call from your program.
