3D plotting library / OpenGL

I've got a collection of 3D libraries here:

My own OpenGLContext would likely handle what you've described.  It's 
scenegraph based, can handle fairly large-ish worlds, allows for writing 
mouse-over and mouse-click handlers.  It has text support using either 
2D or 3D text, and can load VRML97 for defining geometry (spheres, 
crosses, and the like).  It runs under wxPython, GLUT, PyGame, or (with 
some limitations) Tkinter.

On the other hand, scientific visualisation *isn't* it's focus, so one 
of the items from the science category might be more appropriate.

Anyway, HTH,
