Australian Digital Agency iFactory Pioneers Innovative 3D WebGL Modelling
iFactory launches 3D technology for a real time 3D interactive simulation on class-leading global eCommerce site.
3D WebGL Innovation
The 3D visualisation concept uses technology which has been previously dominated by gaming and medical applications which draw on a desktop computer’s access to specialised 3D hardware to enable realistic modelling of an object or image.
In the case of TJM’s project, iFactory 3D developers customised the emerging Web GL standards to enable a web browser access to the graphics card with TJM’s custom parts. To establish this, the manufacturer’
The most basic principle in building 3D integration for web browser display is to keep the polygon count as low as possible. A big part of that is to remodel parts and vehicles to ensure the polygonal density is low enough to ensure performance on an average computer, while retaining the item’s visual integrity. NURBS meshes are the starting point for a 3D designer to remodel the original objects as they convert them to polygon conversions that eliminate the tedious job of going in and stripping out the superfluous elements that aren’t able to be seen in a web browser’s 3D animation view.
3D System Requirements
iFactory’s innovative web browser enabled 3D visualisation can be accessed by Web GL-enabled web browser’s Chrome and Firefox on a PC and Safari on a Mac. Neither operating system requires plug-ins for the 3D visualisation to work. It is also a system which seamlessly integrates into the site’s CMS (http://ifactory.com.au/
