What is 3D model?


I am writing to make my report of project and stuck up what what is 3D modeling and who gave a scientific defintiion of 3D modelling. I am also wondering which type of rendering technique Rhino has and which coordinate system is it using?

Hoping for the support. Thank you.

That is very generous of you Dale. One of the things that makes this forum without compare.


Thanks a lot for the reply. I already browse through the WikiPedia, but looking for the scientific definitions for the 3D modeling in context of Rhino.


I guess you can combine the below regarding 3-dimensional space, and
3D model as representation of object through mathematical computation, either in solid or surfaces.
Rhino uses airtight closed surfaces to represent a solid, though I guess it’s not really a solid but a hollow closed surface…
