Nvidia has announced Omniverse Code, a new app to make it easier for developers to build advanced tools for 3D design and simulation.

The app includes the Omniverse Kit SDK runtime along with foundational tools, templates, and documentation. Developers won’t have to build from scratch with hundreds of Omniverse Extensions available to edit, modify, or integrate into their own extensions or applications.

Interactive documentation helps users to experience features like buttons and sliders. The documentation code is even exposed—allowing users to fully copy and paste it or modify as required.

A new manipulator and scene overlay system called Omni.ui.scene is making its debut in this release of Omniverse Kit. The new framework enables users to construct interactive manipulators and control objects within a 3D environment. A collection of standard manipulators are provided or developers can build their own with just a little Python code.

Python can also be used to customise the new 3D viewport menu which “serves as a one-click portal into various tools available to developers.”

Multiple viewports can be configured individually with unique cameras and renderers so different vantages can be preconfigured.

Here’s a video on how to get started with Omniverse Code:
