Abstract:

This report describes a three-dimensional object simulation program which has been developed. Input to the program is a description of the object in terms of polygons, and light source-object-observer geometry. Output from the program is a two dimensional array of numbers representing the brightness values of the object as would be seen by the observer. Shadows are included in the output image. Examples are shown. The procedure for simulation of an optical system using the simulated images as input is also given, along with examples. Author
