8.4 8.2 L3 Helix Toolkit VS OpenTKThe Open Toolkit library is a fast, low-level C# wrapper for OpenGL, OpenAL & OpenCL. It also includes windowing, mouse, keyboard and joystick input and a robust and fast math library, giving you everything you need to write your own renderer or game engine. OpenTK can be used standalone or inside a GUI on Windows, Linux, Mac.
7.6 6.9 Helix Toolkit VS Win2DWin2D is an easy-to-use Windows Runtime API for immediate mode 2D graphics rendering with GPU acceleration. It is available to C#, C++ and VB developers writing apps for the Windows Universal Platform (UWP). It utilizes the power of Direct2D, and integrates seamlessly with XAML and CoreWindow.
6.5 8.8 Helix Toolkit VS Silk.NETThe high-speed OpenGL, OpenCL, OpenAL, OpenXR, GLFW, SDL, Vulkan, Assimp, and DirectX bindings library your mother warned you about.
Interactive Data Display for WPF is a set of controls for adding interactive visualization of dynamic data to your application. It allows to create line graphs, bubble charts, heat maps and other complex 2D plots which are very common in scientific software. Interactive Data Display for WPF integrates well with Bing Maps control to show data on a geographic map in latitude/longitude coordinates. The controls can also be operated programmatically.
3.2 7.7 Helix Toolkit VS SciChartExamples, tutorials, and sandbox for SciChart WPF: High Performance Realtime Charts
A cross-platform .NET Standard wrapper for the Open Asset Importer ("Assimp"). The library enables importing, processing, and exporting of 3D models for rendering in graphics/game applications. Over 40 formats are supported for importing (e.g. OBJ, FBX, GLTF, 3DS, Collada) and a subset of those formats can be exported to (e.g. OBJ, GLTF, 3DS, Collada). Mesh processing features allow for mesh data to be generated or optimized for real-time rendering.

1. Right-handed Cartesian coordinate system and row major matrix by default
HelixToolkit default is using right-handed Cartesian coordinate system, including Meshbuilder etc. To use left-handed Cartesian coordinate system (Camera.CreateLeftHandedSystem = true), user must manually correct the triangle winding order or IsFrontCounterClockwise in raster state description if using SharpDX. Matrices are row major by default.
