New HW Render Backend implementations coming very soon! Follow the AltSoftLab news on this Site, on Twitter and on Facebook

As AltSketch has several integrations with most popular GUI systems and Mobile platforms, you can develop and test a drawing part of your 3D application/game as independent program, and then easy integrate it into your main solution. Now you can draw Graphics in 3D with Brushes and Pens like you do it with any drawing library. It is flexible and useful development method in case of main project bulking and test complexity, or useful for team development process. Now you can develop graphics part of your Mobile applications without using an emulator as stand-alone application, only running on Mobile devices (or Emulator) for final tests.


We made some changes to HW Render backends, some changes to Demo and Integrations. So please upgrade your projects. Also all resources has been optimized and restructured to more compact size & faster loading.

AltSketch is a pure C# CLS compliant 100% managed, without unsafe blocks Vector Graphics Library with Software and Hardware Render Backends for Games, Scientific Applications & other uses of Computer Graphics. All core functionality collected in one lightweight library AltSketch.dll for Microsoft .NET Framework or Mono (including Silverlight / Moonlight). It depends only on System, System.Data & System.Xml assemblies (.NET Framework 2.0).

AltSketch has Virtual File System support with Zip containers for resources loading. All AltSketch functionality & extensions works via VirtualFS and all resources can be loaded as from real file system, so from Zip containers (from files or memory streams).

AltSketch SDK includes wide variety of open source extensions: ported to AltSketch popular libraries (GUI, Plot, GIS, Computer Science, Physics, Graphics etc.).

AltSketch SDK includes many Integration Demos with a wide variety GUI-s & frameworks and platforms (all Integrations & HW Render Backends are open sourced, so you can easily adapt it to your applications or improve it if you need):

​​AltNETType is a pure C# CLS compliant 100% managed, without unsafe blocks port of wonderful font rendering library Freetype for MS .NET / Mono (including Silverlight / Moonlight). It is presented as a subsystem of AltSketch in Alt.NETType namespace.

AltNETType source code based on FreeType version 2.4.8. We have plans to update AltNETType to the latest FreeType version.

At this moment not all FreeType like interfaces are available, because for further support we need to know which AltNETType’s functions are used directly. But we are ready to give you all necessary program interfaces. You just need to apply for it in the “Feature Requests” section of the forum

AltNETType uses "ANT_" prefixes at code elements instead of native FreeType "FT_" prefixes; the core class named "ANT". Instead of FT_Init_FreeType & FT_Done_FreeType need to use ANT_Init_AltNETType & ANT_Done_AltNETType.

As we can't provide compilation time configuration of FreeType like parameters, so we decided to realize real time configuration parameters. These parameters placed in Alt.NETType.ANTConfig configuration class. AltNETType changes the behavior depending on ANTConfig settings.

AltNETType native (FreeType.NET)

AltNETType (Outline Transformations - Fill and Contour)

AltNETType supports the following font formats:

  • TrueType fonts (TTF) and TrueType collections (TTC)
  • Type 1 fonts (PFA and PFB)
  • CID-keyed Type 1 fonts
  • CFF fonts
  • OpenType fonts (OTF, both TrueType and CFF variants) and OpenType collections (OTC)
  • SFNT-based bitmap fonts
  • X11 PCF fonts
  • Windows FNT fonts
  • BDF fonts (including anti-aliased ones)
  • PFR fonts
  • Type 42 fonts (limited support)

AltNETImage is a subsystem of AltSketch & was designed to be a simple way to load / save a several image format file streams into a Alt.Sketch.Bitmap object. AltNETImage is written entirely in .NET C# code. It does not use any OS-depended or other interoperability code, and it does not use any unsafe code blocks.

Next graphics image file formats supported:

  • BMP
  • GIF
  • JPEG
  • PNG
  • TGA
  • TIFF
  • More image file formats support is coming soon...

We are aiming at the creation of a multi-platform, lightweight and at the same time multifunctional product with a lot of ready solutions based on it. On the one hand, it is a demonstration of AltSketch’s functionality and ways of its use, on the other hand it gives you the possibility of accomplishing your tasks easier and more quickly.
