Web 3D Applications (H7006)

15 credits, Level 6

Spring teaching

You'll explore how 3D can be integrated into mobile web-based applications and study technologies such as:

  • 3D modelling methods for real-time rendering and associated authoring packages (for example, 3ds Max)
  • implementation of efficient navigation and interaction methods
  • responsive web design applied to the implementation of mobile web-based 3D applications.

You'll also:

  • gain experience of 3D modelling and programming (for example 3ds Max, X3D/VRML, X3DOM, HTML, CSS3, XML, JavaScript and associated frameworks and libraries, AJAX, JSON, PHP and SQLite)
  • build a web mobile 3D application (an interactive 3D application that renders across desktop, tablet and mobile devices based on an MVC design pattern).

Example web mobile 3D applications may include a virtual museum, product configurator, vehicle visualisation, burglary simulation or simple web game.
