OK matlab is out because you want to create the engine.

Have a look at VTK as an example. http://public.kitware.com/VTK/


There are many toolkits already there eg VTK and FLTK http://www.fltk.org/
Coin http://www.coin3d.org/ adn volsuite 
n<http://www.osc.edu/VolSuite/>www<http://www.osc.edu/VolSuite/>.osc.edu/VolSuite/

I'm more used to voxel based rendering instead of vector based rendering. 
Naturally vector is faster.

I'm interested in the outcome of this since I intend to develop a 3D 
biology package in the future.

All the best
