Raw WebGL 101 — Part 1: Getting Started

by Chris Mills, Erik Möller in Articles

WebGL allows you to create real 3D content and render it in a web browser. This article series provides a gentle introduction to writing raw WebGL, rendering 3D creations without relying on libraries. In this part we aim to get you set up and started, concluding by running through a simple example.

An Introduction to WebGL — Part 2: Porting 3D Graphics

by Luz Caballero in Articles

This article explores importing existing 3D models into WebGL — a much easier way to go than creating them from scratch in WebGL! The steps include exporting models from 3D packages (including Blender, SketchUp and Shade) into .obj format, converting them from there into JSON, then rendering them from there using the Three.js WebGL library.

An Introduction to WebGL — Part 1
