How to do 3D graphics?

I've attempted many times to create 3D graphics using the JavaScript-Processing.JS dialect on The Khan Academy, but it just never came. Help!

Rather than telling everyone you need help learning all of it, you should take on a project, post some source code and ask for help to get it working (or in the case of working code, how it works)

I guarantee no one here has the time (and if they did wouldn't) teach you 3D graphic programming.

1. Find a language
2. Find a graphics library for said language
3. Find documentation on said graphics library
4. Code.

BTW TBB, I've got a few projects I find time every now and then to work on that involve graphics programming. Let me know if you want to compare notes and sweet jaz riffs.

I'm amazed I didn't think of that. TTB = IotY.

I've attempted a lot of things in code and this one never got me anywhere. That said, if you look around, you'll probably find some resources of how to do it in certain languages. It's hard, hard enough that most people stick to other projects, but it's also fun and rewarding if you can pull it off. If you find out how to do it, I'd like to hear what you found and how you did it, as I've been struggling with finding good resources on this one (most being non-free).

Maybe one day (depending on demand, it may be sooner rather than later) I'll make a comprehensive OpenGL from the ground up on YouTube (C++). I know a lot of tutorials at the moment all requires library's like GLUT or SDL etc.

Though I do feel even if you want to do 3D graphics programming using something like SDL or directX is the way to go. At least until you are confident with your maths.

I am way overconfident with my maths. Maybe, if, someday, I finally figure out 3D graphics and modeling, I'll make some YouTube tutorials and link them here. BTW, I'm actually getting into Minecraft modding. If there turns out to be demand on HTS, then I can post a thread over in the programming section regarding modding. I actually created the ultimate trolling machine without placing a single block (except for the three I used to build a Snow Golem).
