Surface Modelling

Surface modelling is a graphical mapping technique for solid-looking, virtual objects. Slowly being replaced by solid modelling, surface modelling involves taking the basic wireframe, and adding a surface 'skin'. Often used in online environments, and architectural drawings, and other CAD, surface modelled objects cannot be dissected or broken apart without breaking the feeling of immersion as there is nothing inside the skin.

Not a platform or modelling software specific book, Modelling Digital Dinosaurs is Ken?s first book, and it takes you through the basics of creating 3D representations of something which has fascinated and captivated for centuries ? dinosaurs. The book does this in a patient, kind, step by step manner, demonstrating techniques which really aid the beginning to intermediate modeller. Contains a free copy of Amapi version 1.5 on the CD in case the reader does not have a 3D modeller.

Modelling the Songbird's Vocalization Apparatus
Researchers at the University of Southern Denmark are tackling the virtual voice problem from the other end. They are attempting to understand how the zebra finch makes the noises it does, and accomplishes its range of sounds, by capturing the existing organs in its throat, modelling them in 3D, converting to a virtual environment and attempting to animate the model to produce the same sounds via fluid dynamics.



This book comprises the proceedings of the fifth Modelling and Simulation conference IASTED (International Association of Science and TEchnology for Development) ran, back in 2006. It holds 630 pages, and 163 papers.
