What do you mean by "application" ?

A framework that provides tools to create a game with 3D graphics ? If so, have a look at something like Unity (http://unity3d.com/unity/).

A game 3D engine around which you can build a game ? If so, have a look at Irrlicht (http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/), or any of the large selection of freely available game engines (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_game_engines).

A relatively low level library that allows to interact with the video hardware in a convenient way ? If so, have a look at either OpenGL (http://www.opengl.org/) or Direct3D (http://www.gamesforwindows.com/directx/) : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_OpenGL_and_Direct3D (note that the latter isn't exactly free).
