What Is 3D Graphic Arts?

By Mandi Pralle

3D computer graphics or graphic arts use three-dimensional representations of figures instead of older 2D models. They have several advantages over 2D representations, not least of which is that the representation provider uses much more accurate and realistic, so the results can be much more accurate and realistic, too. Although 2D representations were certainly a good start, 3D models allow a 3D object, for example, to be scanned into a computer, after which they can be manipulated to produce different effects.

How it works

With 3D graphic arts, objects are laid out within the scene and then rendered. The location and size of the objects and relations of the rest of the scene, as well as its movement and deformation over time, are also taken into consideration.

3D rendering is done to convert a model into an image, which can then be manipulated to determine various effects.

Uses for 3D modeling or 3D graphics

One of the most effective uses for 3D modeling or 3D graphics is in mechanical product design. With 3D graphics, prototypes can be developed much more rapidly; in addition, these prototypes are clean and there's a smooth transition to the final product, which lowers costs and manufacture. Many companies require prototypes to be produced quickly, and 3D graphic art programs can fill this need, for the lowest cost and most expedient processes possible.

3D graphic cards also be used with human modeling, for artists who want to manipulate human figures within scenery.

Many people can use 3D graphic arts programs during the manufacturing process

3D model design services can be used by many different people, including design technicians and engineers. This allows them to have working models of the product while still in development so that product development and ultimate manufacturer is much more efficient. 3D modeling allows for much more efficient prototyping than traditional methods to do, in that they are much more efficient and much less time-consuming than traditional methods. Product development was rife with delays when traditional methods were used, but this drawback has largely been mitigated with the advent of 3D modeling through 3D graphics programs.

Some advantages to using 3D graphic arts programs

* Because manufacturing drawings can be visualized in 3D, this gives developers a significant advantage over 2D renderings or even simple drawings.

* When one feature is altered, other information is automatically highlighted that depends on that feature, called "bidirectional parametric association."

* Assembly designs are much simpler, showing the relation between related parts and full assemblies as applicable.

* 3D sectional views allow for a closer look at the "product" in its modeling stage.

* Clearance, interference and kinematics can all be checked in assemblies in 3D format without the hassle of having a physical prototype to change, redevelop, reconstruct, etcetera.

3D graphic arts programs to try

You can find 3D graphic arts programs online; Adobe makes a popular 3D graphics program, and some of these are also available as "freeware" with limited functionality if you want to try before you buy. Other possible choices include DAZ | Studio, completely free 3D artwork, Google SketchUp (also free), and Autodesk 3D Studio MAX (Windows).

The Journey of a 3D Artist Start's With Will Power and the Right Software for His Goal

By Florin Dragota

Giving your creative spirit freedom to create 3D animation, objects, textures, etc can be very fun and satisfying. For those who are talented and artistic, the 3D world may be the next step. A job in this industry is very well paid and working with a team of professionals you can improve your skills much faster.

But we all have different goals when it comes to 3D art. Some people want to mod games, others want to create concepts (car design, architectural design, etc), some want to work in the movie industry creating special effects, compositing 3D with live footage, etc. And others are fascinated and curious to learn more about 3D art, but not yet interested enough to dive in.

Meeting your goals imply will power and the means and tools to achieve them. Most people fail early because they lack will power. Talent and inclination towards art alone are not sufficient to succeed in this area. Perseverance is key.

To succeed you need a bit of talent, a little patience and lots and lots of perseverance. If you have these qualities, the tools and means are many and diversified. By tools I mean a 3D software complete with animation, modeling tools, texturing, rendering and all you will need as an artist.

It is understandable that those who are just starting out spend a lot of time finding and choosing "the perfect" software with which to begin. There is no such thing as the perfect software, only the perfect software for your needs. It is important which software you choose because you are going to invest money in the software's license (and possibly professional training) and also time to learn how to use it. Professional training with qualified instructors is usually expensive for most.

You do not want to buy a software that is too complex and hard to learn because you risk frustrating yourself and eventually loosing interest. But you also do not want to buy a software that is to simple and technologically limited (lower quality results) because you run the risk of not achieving your full creative potential. The easier the 3D software is to learn and use the more you can focus on the artistic part of the process and less on the technical part. Thus the path from idea / concept / vision to materializing it is smoother and shorter.

I have tested some of these tools available on the market and did a review on my blog. I invite you to take a look.

Learn To Design And Create Your Own 3D Animations Easily - Computer Graphics

By Cody Landon

The 3D animation industry is a booming domain in both educational and career fronts. Just like many individuals in the digital or even in the print world you may be interested in knowing how to design your own 3D animation. In this piece we will take you through some few overviews of some platforms you can use to practice 3D animation.

As you may already know 3D objects are useful and are used most in the in electronic and print media. There are many areas in which you can apply the stunning 3D objects. 3D animations can be done in the the following graphic formats, 3D GIFs, animations for the web as well as 3D web banners. In this regard you can also focus on making 3D banners and creating illustrations. 3D animations are also very useful in the domain of the development of creative imagination. Now we are getting down to the few applications that you can use to get to piece-together a good 3D animation.

In your 3D scene of your design platform you need to know how to add these objects; a dummy cube, disk, sprite, plane, sphere, cylinder, cone, frustum, etc. You also have to add the arrow lines the mirror as well as the space text. In the this design and animation platform you also get the facilities to edit the parameters of the objects. What is great is that you can also rotate and move objects as well as groups of objects. This platform also enables you to fill objects by color or texture for BMP and JPEG designs.

SwishMax provides you with everything that you need to create amazing and completely interactive flash animations. What you also need to know is that you can add shapes, text buttons as well as sprites and even motion paths. The good news is that you can also include over 230 ready-to-use animation effects. These effects include explode, vortex and the magnificent wave as well as the 3D spin.

The SwishMax interface enables you to do all that you need to do to customize your designs and animations and create your 3D according to what you imagine. Realsoft 3D is yet another complete and fully resourced modeling, animation as well as rendering animation platform which also functions as a simulation package. There are quite a number of 3D animation applications that you need to familiarize yourself with.

It is handy to have options and to know what each particular application is good at when it comes to 3D animation art. Get time and run through platforms like Effects3D which comes with formidable editing tools and effects. You also need to consider the kind of format that particular applications can produce or work with such as JPG, GIF, BMP and AVI.

Using 3D Modelling in Graphic Design

By Paul P Michaels

The use of 3D modeling in graphic design is becoming more commonplace and is used in a wide variety of different fields. The process of 3D modeling is to represent a three dimensional surface object, whether it be inanimate or living, with specialized software. Also referred to as 3D computer graphics, a business can benefit in many ways from using this technology within their graphic designs. The use of 3D models in graphic design is now widespread, and many computer games actually used 3D modeling before computers could render them in real time.

Nearly all 3D models can be divided into two different categories, those that are solid and those that are shell/boundary. Solid models define the volume of the object and are more realistic, although much more difficult to build. They are used mostly for non visual simulations, including those developed in the engineering and medical industries. A shell/boundary model doesn't represent the volume but the surface area. They are easier to work with and these are the types used in film and video games.

3D models are used in many different industries. For example the movie industry has come to rely on 3D modeling as today's story lines and the need for special effects remains constant. Actors often find themselves acting opposite a blue screen and having to imagine their co-star, who is actually added in later via 3D modeling. This is true for both animated and real-life motion pictures. The medical industry is able to make significant advances through the use of 3D graphics as they can use detailed images of organs and other parts of the body. Today video and computer games look almost real with the incredible detail that has been achieved through 3D technology. Models are used in science and research to great effect, and within engineering time, money and effort can be saved by generating 3D models of designs, vehicles and structures, not to mention that structures can be tested to some degree with a higher element of safety. Buildings and landscapes can also be constructed by using this technology within the architecture industry. More recently earth science professionals are using 3D geological models, all developed through the use of 3D modeling.

A graphic design company can help your business use 3D modeling effectively and to great benefit. With so many businesses having a website as part of their advertising platform 3D modeling can help you present ideas, products or services from a completely unique perspective. Your businesses marketing potential can be enhanced as clients can take virtual tours of your facility, a 3D character can guide them through your website and clients could even experience 3D versions of your product. Not just for the Internet your business could also use models within instructional CD-ROM or DVD's, and you may find it easier when taking photographs for print advertisements to use a 3D model instead of the real product, particularly in cases where the product may be dirty, it is dangerous working industrial equipment or it is hard for the photographer to access.

At moments of great enthusiasm it seems to me that no one in the world has ever made something this beautiful and important.
 M.C. Escher

I am essentially a painter of the kind of still life composition that communicates a sense of tranquillity and privacy, moods which I have always valued above all else.
 Giorgio Morandi

A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.
 William Dobell

The holy grail is to spend less time making the picture than it takes people to look at it.

To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.
 Giorgio de Chirico

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.
 John Lennon

The music that really turns me on is either running toward God or away from God. Both recognize the pivot, that God is at the center of the jaunt.

There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it.
 Henry Moore

You come to nature with all her theories, and she knocks them all flat.

Iím not an abstractionist. Iím not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. Iím interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.
 Mark Rothko

Painting is so poetic, while sculpture is more logical and scientific and makes you worry about gravity.
 Damien Hirst

Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.

The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.

Believe it or not, I can actually draw.
 Jean Michel Basquiat

Man can't do without God. Just like you're thirsty, you have to drink water. You just can't go without God.
 Bob Marley

O great creator of being grant us one more hour to perform our art and perfect our lives.
 Jim Morrison
