Where to Apply 3D Modeling

  1. 3D models are widely used for education. Training, simulators, and other teaching materials are made with 3D modeling. It keeps students engaged and excited about learning, although the implementation of the 3D design into the classrooms might be daunting due to learning standards, instructions, and the like.
  2. Usage in VR and AR. Virtual and augmented reality technologies are sprouting, causing a high demand for 3D models compatible with these realities. Nowadays, it is the most challenging type of 3D modeling since 3D models here should be flexible.
  3. 3D printing is a relatively new industry. Electronic devices, buildings, and even functional organs — this amazing invention has revolutionized manufacturing. So it can be used for inexpensive prototyping. 3D printers cannot build without blueprints, so they need 3D models.
  4. Healthcare implements 3D modeling software to achieve better and practical visualization to fit a patient’s specific anatomy. Ranging from accurate replication of pathology and anatomy to assist pre-surgical planning and simulation of complex surgical or interventional procedures, serve as a useful tool for education of medical students and patients, and improve doctor-patient communication.
  5. 3D modeling in product marketing. This is the usual and basic way to use 3D models. Marketing departments use these models in catalogs or some promotional materials for product visualization.
  6. Game design. Computer games have become more lifelike both in terms of features and graphics. At the moment, game developers can make masterpieces that can simulate the real-world with overwhelming visuals. Couple that with VR and AR, and you get Matrix-like software. Almost all types of 3D modeling work here — for level design and entity creation.
  7. Architectural rendering. There is a saying that architecture is 50% creativity and 50% math. For the construction and engineering part of design visualization, here comes CAD or computer-aided drafting. It is used to translate 2D blueprints into 3D, making on-site activity and construction management significantly easier. The results are just that — blueprints, but these 3D models can be used as a basis for more artistic depictions of exteriors and interiors.
  8. Film industry. There is no denying that the quality of special effects makeup is outstanding within the film and television industry. CGI is widely presented in movies. When modeling for film, it is necessary to achieve the right balance of production speed and quality of the image.
