Mining Made Smarter

3D modeling is a technique in computer graphics for producing a 3D digital representation of any object or surface.

An artist uses special software to manipulate points in virtual space(called vertices) to form a mesh: a collection of vertices that form an object.

These 3D objects can be generated automatically or created manually by deforming the mesh, or otherwise manipulating vertices.

3D models are used for a variety of mediums including video games, movies, architecture, illustration, engineering, and commercial advertising.

REndering

3D rendering is the process of turning information from a 3D model into a 2D image. 3D rendering can be used to create a variety of images, from the intentionally non-realistic (see Figure 1) to what’s called photo-realistic. The latter look so much like images captured by a traditional camera that most consumers can’t tell the difference between a 3D rendering and a “real” photo

With a sturdy wernier, a steady hand and a little know how in CAD software such as Fusion 360 (or even Tinkercad) it should pose no issue to measure the dimensions of your part and recreate it digitally with said data. If the broken part is difficult to measure, you could also try to find drawings from the original manufacturer on their website.

Animation

3D animation is one of the supreme disciplines in contemporary art. Not only does it require knowledge about the 3D models used in its creation. The 3D animator also needs a substantial understanding of shot composition, the specifics of the game engine used, the renderer, and the 3D animation software. Most importantly, you need to have talent as a storyteller to get your message across.
