3D Modeling

3D Modeling in the Metaverse


3D modeling is a process that uses a range of tools to create three-dimensional digital representations of an object or place.

Creating 3D models can be difficult and time-consuming, but they can be very useful in sectors and fields that require 3D rendering.

3D modeling is the starting point for developing custom virtual reality or augmented reality applications. If you want to create a 6DoF VR experience, you’ll need to model every component of the experience.

3D Modeling Techniques

The phrase “3D modeling” is a broad one. Let’s break it down into smaller categories.

Hard-Surface Modeling

It is a way to create things that look real. There are different types of them, but hard-surface modeling is the most common for creating 3D renderings, virtual reality applications, and augmented reality apps.

There are two types of 3D modeling: organic and hard surface. Organic modeling is when you use something that is alive, like a person or animal. Hard surface modeling is when you use something that is not alive, like a car or a toy. Hard surface modeling focuses on things that are rigid and also cannot be deformed without breaking.

Organic Modeling

The most common way to make organic things like plants, trees, animals, and people is using organic modeling. This involves making a 3D model of the thing you want to create and then making it look like it’s real. Animators often use organic models because they can deform (change shape) when they are acted on by pressure, temperature, or speed.

Character Modeling

Creating primary characters for your project is also known as character modeling. These models are not one-dimensional, they also have distinct personalities and styles. If you put yourself into your development, for example, you’d want your character to resemble you with their distinct complexions.

Soft-Body Modeling

Soft-body modeling is used to create simulations of objects that bend and change shape when pressure is applied, like a tennis ball. This type of modeling is focused on making things look realistic, which is different from hard-surface modeling which creates stiff, unrealistic objects. You can use soft-body modeling for a variety of purposes, including creating clothing and fabric simulations.

Implementation of each modelling technique

To illustrate the application of hard-surface modeling and the organic modeling approach, an example is using a fruit bowl on a table.

There are three main types of 3D modeling: hard-surface modeling, organic modeling, and soft-body modeling. The fruit bowl and hardwood table in the picture are an example of hard-surface modeling. The apples in the picture are an example of organic modeling. Finally, the cloth beneath is an example of soft-body modeling.

This is a technique to create a character that is similar to you. Therefore, this is often used in video games. In the metaverse, you will look like this character.
