Animation in terms of 3D Modeling

Currently, one of the most popular and fast-growing technology is 3d drawing and 3d modeling. There are several ways of expressing thoughts and ideas; computer-based graphics such as 3d modeling and 3d animation. They are most preferred nowadays due to low cost and easily achievable models and animations. However, there are some people who are completely unfamiliar with this 3D drawings and aminated world.

If you love to watch animated movies, you had experienced by watching Avatar. The Lion King type movies where digital modeling and 3d animation are used. The video gaming industry also improved as they had interactive experience in 3d designs. Making an animated based film is slightly different from the animated video game and other 3d models.

3d drawing is nothing but generating a multi-layer object in the 3d environment and when rendering it will create animation. There is a different type of approaches available in creating traditional and 3d drawing, which is the subtractive approach and additive approach.

the subtractive approach is all about cutting, welding, grinding, and assembling whereas, in the additive approach, two different types of techniques are available for 3d model creation, the first is Stereolithography (SLA) and the second one is Fused Decomposition Modeling (FDM). Mostly FDM is used but, according to your work, you will apply any one of the techniques. The Stereolithography (SLA) is based on Ultra-Violet light whereas, Fused Decomposition Modeling (FDM) applies semi-liquid plastic for providing layout to the 3d models.

The Main Advantage of Using the Additive Approach for 3d Modeling are:

  • Reduction of manufacturing cost and manufacturing time as compared to the traditional approach.
  • Increase the productive amount of work and fewer resources are consumed.
