3D modeling

(1) See 3D printing.

(2) Creating images in the computer by designating and manipulating their width, height and depth. 3D modeling and "3D stereo" are not the same. 3D modeling is used to create images in the computer that may or may not be rendered in stereoscopic 3D, which provides the illusion of real depth (see 3D visualization). See surface modeling, solid modeling and CAD.
