Topic for GDB

3D computer graphics uses a three-dimensional representation of geometric data that is stored in the computer for the purposes of performing calculations and rendering 3D images. Furthermore, 3D graphics components are now a part of almost every personal computer. In 3D modeling we develop a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of an object (either inanimate or living) via specialized software.

Topic: Discuss and compare any four (open source or commercial) 3D modeling tools that are used for real time simulation in different types of field.

In 3D computer graphics, 3D modeling (or three-dimensional modeling ) is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of an object (either inanimate or living) via specialized software. The product is called a 3D model. It can be displayed as a two-dimensional image through a process called 3D rendering or used in a computer simulation of physical phenomena. The model can also be physically created using 3D printing devices.

Models may be created automatically or manually. The manual modeling process of preparing geometric data for 3D computer graphics is similar to plastic arts such as sculpting.

3D modeling software is a class of 3D computer graphics software used to produce 3D models. Individual programs of this class are called modeling applications or modelers.

Open Source Tools:

1. 1.      Art of Illusion
2. 2.      AutoQ3D Community
3. 3.      Blender
4. 4.      K-3D

1. 1.      Art of Illusion is a 3D modeling, texturing, ray tracing, and rendering application, used to create computer-generated stills or animations.

Art of Illusion is capable of modeling and rendering photorealistic images and animations; it is capable of non-photorealistic rendering as well. Art of Illusion has features, such as mesh editing, texture mapping, and Boolean modeling, that are comparable to other high end commercial graphics software. Some of its features, like the use of online repositories and a built-in downloading tool for installing extensions, are not found in similar proprietary software.

The primary creator and maintainer of the software is Peter Eastman.

Art of Illusion is written in the Java programming language. Distributed under the GNU General Public License,  it is free software.

1. 2.       AutoQ3D Community is cross-platform CAD software, suited for 3D modeling and texturing. The main objective of this software development is to take away the hassle and complexity for sketching and drawing in 3D. AutoQ3D Community is not a professional CAD program and it is targeted at beginners who want to make rapid 3D designs. It offers plenty of features but is relatively simple to learn and use.

AutoQ3D Community is written in C++ using the Qt application framework and supports the OpenGL API. AutoQ3D Community is free and open-source software subject to the requirements of the GNU General Public License.

1. 3.      Blender is a professional free and open-source 3D computer graphics software product used for creating animated films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications and video games. Blender's features include 3D modeling, UV unwrapping, texturing, raster graphics editing, rigging and skinning, fluid and smoke simulation ,particle simulation, soft body simulation, sculpting, animating, match moving, camera tracking, rendering, video editing and compositing. It further features an integrated game engine.
2. 4.      K-3D is free 3D modeling and animation software. Despite its name it is not a KDE application; it uses the GTK+ toolkit via gtkmm. It features a plug-in-oriented procedural engine for all of its content. K-3D supports polygonal modeling, and it includes basic tools for NURBS, patches, curves and animation.
