[an error occurred while processing this directive]

A modeler is a program that generates a description of a scene or a collection of 3D objects (usually in text format). It also specifies how the scene should look like in 3D display. Rendering software (often called rendering engine), such as raytracer, are used to produce photo- quality images according to the designed lighting condition.
