boundary method, polygon, stereometry, stereo system, 3D technology


StereoMV is a part of а dissertation on a topic "Stereoscopic Training System". The main purpose of the stereo system is to facilitate learning of the concepts of stereometry. The system is the author’s and offers a new approach for generating geometric bodies. The boundary method is used for creating the figures, which is based on the method of the boundaries of Isaac Newton and the "Indivisible" of the Italian mathematician Bonaventura Cavalieri. The study shows how by using 3D technologies such as virtual reality and 3D printing, the process of teaching in stereometry classes will be significantly facilitated. The report presents a comparative analysis of the existing and new way of creating a regular polygon. The graphics can be presented in two ways, namely: solid and transparent. The stereo system provides an opportunity for converting from solid to transparent. The 3D model depends on its geometry and appearance. Geometry means mathematical description and the appearance is defined by the: material, texture, light and transparency. After creating the stereometric figure, the system enables it to be converted to .obj file (mesh).
