3D Volumetric Display
Tuesday, 4 January, 2011 § 56 Comments
Happy 2011, I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. On to business; recently i’ve been working on 3d volumetric display that would be capable of rendering a free floating 3d 360° volumetric object/s. Below are a few videos of a quick prototype i knocked up in few days, at the beginning of the holidays. Hope you enjoy it.
The above video shows a simple 3d vector generated and textured primitive, rotating on its X and Y axis.
The above video shows a 3ds file exported from Autodesk (any 3ds file will work even generated from GOOGLE sketchup) rendered in 360° rotating on it Y axis.
The above video demonstrates how the rendering can be enlarged as well as how the rendering medium can be inverted to allow for varying design situations.
