3D Animation

Unity is a 3D game engine and development platform, but it can also be used to create beautiful and photorealistic 3D animation and visualization. For example, a 3D animation of a moving machine or visualization of a building. And it's coded in C# with Visual Studio.

3D Animation with Unity

Unity is primarily a game engine for 3D animation and a development environment. When you say 3D animation with Unity, many people think of computer games and the like, but Unity can be used for so many other things.

Animation of equipment for marketing or guidance

If you make a 3D model of an appliance or piece of equipment, you can animate the model with Unity and create some great marketing material even before the prototype is made. The same tools can be used to create instructional videos that show how a machine works or should be used.

Visualization of construction

Unity or Twinmotion (based on Unreal Engine) is the obvious choice for visualizing a building. With Unity, you can take a virtual reality tour inside a building with a VR headset. Or with Twinmotion, you can bring your visualization to life with people, birds and cars moving around, seasons with different weather and trees swaying in the wind.

Graphics processor for 3D Animation

A CPU in a modern computer can have 4, 8 or even 16 cores. The more cores a CPU has, the more things the computer can do at the same time. But if you compare it to a newer 3D graphics card, something much more wild happens. For example, a newer graphics card like the GeForce RTX 4090 has 16384 cores, so it can run the equivalent of 16384 CPU cores at the same time, though not as advanced as the CPU, but it's a huge computing power. That's why modern graphics cards can create incredible 3D graphics that simulate light, reflections, textures and their surfaces.
The same computing power can also be used for other things, e.g. large graphics cards are very useful in the context of the Internet. artificial intelligence and machine learning. This could be in projects where you are working on recognizing objects in images or video.


Here are some of the 3D projects I've worked on:

  • Animation of 3D printer (see video on this page).
  • Visualization of construction, including the ability to move around in VR.
  • Animation of machines at a manufacturing company.
  • Rendering product images for packaging, at a time when prototypes have not been made.
  • Demonstration of product functionality and usage based on animated 3D models.

If you would like to find out if I might be able to help you with something similar to the above projects, please contact me.
