Case Study: Manufacturer's Web Site

Ethan designs and manages the Web site for his manufacturing company, which builds power woodworking tools. To show how a complicated new miter saw works, the Web site needs to illustrate the tool animated in 3-D. VRML is chosen as the format for the animation, because it has to download quickly. Also, visual detail is secondary to action and point of view in this case, because the site already has lots of photos of the tool.

To create the animation, Ethan brings a CAD model of the tool into 3D Studio Max on his Windows NT PC. In the 3-D environment, he adds lighting to the scene and places a camera, which provides the point of view of the model.
