Phew! We’ve had to rewrite pretty much the whole of GeoGebra to achieve this, and we’ve had to do this while doing other cool things like HTML5 & the CAS View but finally we’re ready to release **GeoGebra 5 with 3D**.

Mathieu “3D Superhero” Blossier

The *3D Superhero *behind all this is of course Mathieu Blossier who has been coding and coordinating from his poky attic room in Rouen since 2008 and as they say “*When the going gets tough, the tough get going*” which definitely applies to Mathieu.

There have already been **many **benefits to 2D GeoGebra behind the scenes from the 3D work. For example in GeoGebra 4 we added the *Point in Object* tool so that Points could be placed on Polygons in 3D later on.

As usual our wonderful translators have been working hard ready for the release so GeoGebra 5 is already available in all the usual languages.

Some other highlights:

You can read about the full changes in the Release Notes.

Here are some 3D examples that you can try:

7 Mutually touching cylinders

Unnamed shape, discovered using GeoGebra

Net of a cube

Cross-section of a pyramid

Dandelin’s theorem

Anyway, enough said. Download GeoGebra with 3D and have fun!

Mike, Markus and the entire GeoGebra team

Excited about this. Will there be a 3D version for iOS devices? I see the Mac installer requires Java. 🙁

Thumbs up!

We're not sure yet. 3D applets work on iOS8 in GeoGebraTube at least 🙂

Great. Brilliant.

Muy bueno, gracias

Michael Borcherds Indeed the 3D applets illustrated here work in iOS8 beta 5. Cool. It would be nice to have stand alone apps, however.

I love it!

it is just a new dimension to impact.

it is just a new dimension to impact.

Wonderful !

powerful visual impact. very interesting.

This is great, but how come the front page of geogebra.org says nothing about releasing 5.0?? The stable version is still listed as 4.4.

excellent. exited to work with 3D. Our teacher Sri. Vasant Barve sir use to prepare 3D using 2D with lots of hard work. Thanks to geogebra for making it easy.

Congratulations Ive been using GeoGebra for several years.

I Have a question in previous versions there was a Python Window, it was removed from GeoGebra 3D?

Sorry the Python View has been removed permanently

Tôi vô cùng biết ơn các bạn. Tôi là một giáo viên dạy toán, không biết tiếng anh và không có tiền để mua phần mềm. Các bạn đã tao ra một sản phẩm vô cùng giá trị. Theo tôi nó hay hơn những phần mềm mà tôi đã sử dụng qua!

Tôi lại phải nói về các bạn. Các Siêu Anh Hùng 3D. Các bạn đã làm một điều trong 16 năm (Phi lợi nhuận). Thế giới sẽ nhớ đến các bạn! Tôi và các học sinh của tôi biết ơn các bạn thật nhiều. Hỡi những Anh hùng GeoGebra 3D!!!!!
