3D Graphics in the Browser with Elm

lucamug profile image lucamug Updated on ・18 min read

This is a collection of cool 3D stuff made 100% in Elm.

Get inspired to play with these tools, build stuff and contribute to public libraries!

If you think that something is missing, you spotted a mistake or you have some feedback, send me a message or - even better - open an issue or send a pull request in this repository.

If you want to learn more about 3D Graphics in Elm, you can start reading the documentation of these libraries and joining the channels #webgl and #gamedev in the Elm Slack.

Enjoy! 🎉

Demos

Balls and Blocks

Cloth

Cloth simulation built using many particle bodies and distance constraints between adjacent points.

Duckling

Overlay

Lack

This demo allows dragging objects with mouse, try flipping the table!

Duckling

This demo loads a convex shape and a mesh from the same OBJ file

Circuit Breaker

Floating City

A three dimensional representation of Tokyo rendered in SVG, used for the Elm Japan Conference website

3D Vector Animations

Implementing 3D vector visualizations in Elm, rendered as pure SVGs

Car

This shows how hinge constrains can be used to assemble a car. Use the arrow keys to steer and speed!

Boxes

This demo is used to test performance. It drops 5×5×5 boxes. Try changing boxesPerDimension to drop even more!

Teapot

Slimy Broccoli with Perlin Noise

Randomize

This demo drops random bodies. It also shows how to make a compound body out of multiple shapes.

Procedural Landscape

Dice

Physically simulated dice roller!

Viewer

This example demonstrates how to load a mesh from a file. It can also be used to test the parser.

Pod

This example demonstrates how to extract multiple meshes with shadows from an OBJ file and render with elm-3d-scene.

3D Game of Life

Copter 3D 🚁

Morph

Cubik

Bumping Car 🚗

A modified version of RaycastCar written by Andrey Kuzmin.

Planet 3D

Generates a planet with randomized surface.

Live MIDI dancer

Exposure and Tone Mapping

Dominoes

Multiple Shadows

Oslo Elm Day

A demo similar to Oslo Elm Day 2019, but implemented in Elm instead of Three.js.

Libraries

  • elm-3d-scene⬈ by Ian Mackenzie. This is a high-level Elm package for producing 3D Graphics, with support for lighting, shadows and realistic materials.
  • elm-physics⬈ by Andrey Kuzmin. Experimental toy physics engine.
  • webgl⬈ by Elm Explorations. A simple API for rendering with WebGL. This is useful for both 2D and 3D rendering because it lets you take advantage of hardware acceleration with the GPU, meaning you can render things more quickly. This library was created by Evan Czaplicki and John P Mayer, Jr. Andrey Kuzmin is now the main maintainer.
  • elm-geometry⬈ by Ian Mackenzie. This package provides a wide variety of geometric data types such as points, vectors, arcs, spline curves and coordinate frames, along with functions for transforming and combining them in many different ways.
  • elm-3d-camera⬈ by Ian Mackenzie. This package provides convenient ways to define and use perspective and orthographic cameras in 3D.
  • elm-obj-file⬈ by Andrey Kuzmin. An Elm package to decode 3D models from the OBJ file format. Helpful to create objects in Blender and render them with elm-3d-scene.
  • elm-playground-3d⬈ by Luca Mugnaini. A package to draw simple three-dimensional objects in SVG.
