3D Container Port in JavaFX

by | Mar 15, 2012 | 0 comments

For JavaOne 2012 I built a 3D container port demo to show what could be done with JavaFX 3D. It was built in colaboration with Navis and Canoo, they provided the data engine and I built the UI. The amazing John Yoon helped creating the 3D models for cranes, trucks etc. I designed all the textures in Photoshop. The 3D models were kept very simple so we could have 1000s of them animating in real time. We innovated and prototyped quite a few interesting ways of overlaying the data on the 3D model and exploding the 3D stacks to aid understanding and interaction.
