In layman’s terms, 3D modeling is the art of making a digital representation of any object in three dimensions through specialized software. The object is termed a 3D virtual model. A person who works with 3D digital models could be called a 3D sculptor or a 3D designer.
One of the most popular areas of 3D design and graphics is the video game industry, especially in the video games business. The best examples of this can be found in the popular Mass Effect and Call of Duty games.
Not all 3D computer graphics software is suited to video games, so it is important for people working in this area to have a certain level of experience in the design and implementation of video game models.
