I'd like to know Mathematica draws 3D graphics with respect to platform it's running on?

For Windows:

  • Is it using Diret3D(DirectX)?

For Linux/Solaris:

  • Is it Using OpenGL or Vulkan?

For Mac OS X:

  • Is it using OpenGL or Metal?

If none of the above is being used then which mechanism is being used achieve 3D graphics ?

Thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ in good old days, in old versions, I think Mathematica graphics were all postscript. $\endgroup$ – Nasser Jan 18 '18 at 5:42
