3d modeling

Post by berserk »

Hello everyone.
I'm searching for a 3d modeling app like im, but for 3d.
I found open scad which uses script to create 3d geometry, but it's far from im.
Are you aware of something?

The only one I've ever understood is POV-Ray. It comes with a window system, and GUIs are available, but it is really script-driven. I sometimes use it in conjunction with IM, so there are some examples on my pages.

How do you make integration with pov ray?
The list of the images in your page is big.
Will you link some example?

If you search that index page for "POV-Ray", you will find http://im.snibgo.com/coffmug.htm

What a great example. i'll check that out.
Did you explain how to integrate Im and pov?

I'm not sure what you mean by "integration". I use the two pieces of software together. I haven't combined them into one. (However, IM can already call POV-Ray as an external delegate.)

For example, I use IM to make images that will be used by POV-Ray, and to process images made by POV-Ray. As shown on that Coffee Mug page, I use POV-Ray to make displacement maps that IM can use to transform images into 3D shapes.
