There’s a ray tracer: https://github.com/len/RayTracer
In the Domains package https://github.com/len/Domains I implemented an
incremental rendering approach that makes possible to render real algebraic
surfaces and rotate/scale in real-time (this uses the ray tracer). Also I
did some simple 3D stuff for drawing graphs, also with interactive with
scaling and rotations. The Domains package is big and complex, but perhaps
looking at the few morphs might be useful (class categories
Domains-Graphs-Morphic and class ImplicitSurfacePlotMorph). Haven’t used
those morphs in a long time, tho, I should check if they still work...
