Here's a page (http://www.vrplumber.com/py3d.py) with links to 73 possible 
libraries.

I've played with Slut (http://slut.sourceforge.net/) and it is quite easy to 
work with.  Here's a Flash movie (recorded using Wink) of a sphere that I 
programmed and rotated about: 
http://www.geocities.com/ptmcg/python/sphere1.htm, and here is the program 
that created it: http://www.geocities.com/ptmcg/python/vecSlut2.py.txt.

The demos that come with Slut are quite impressive, too.  The Slut project 
web page summarizes them here 
(http://slut.sourceforge.net/examples/index.html), but the little videos 
don't do them justice.
