3D Animated Compass
This animated 3D compass spins around the Y axis. See the 3D Virtual Compass.
Seven Thunder Software mapped the compass with diffuse colors, rendered to texture, then exported as a DAE file. The baked texture was modified with Photoshop. The metal shines with highlights based on light location.
Seven Thunder Software's
3D Translator app
converted Collada DAE data for display with WebGL
and shader lighting. Data included normals, texels, and vertices.
The original compass model was provided
by a third party.
However the model required some repairs to render well
including filling holes in the geometry with 3DS Max
