While it would be possible to do this using SWIG, python-brlcad is an already on-going effort to wrap BRL-CAD functionality in python/ctypes via ctypesgen to allow for easier scripting (see References).
The project is in it's early development stage, the source code allows for now the scripting (read/modify/write) of only a selected set of primitives using libwdb.
The goal of this GSOC task is to wrap the libged BRL-CAD library to match the geometry editing capabilities of mged directly from the python command line.
- brlcad: src/libged
- Strong familiarity with both C and python
