Web 3D Applications (H7006)
15 credits, Level 6
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.
- 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.
