In graphics, modeling is a process of constructing a virtual 3D object (a computer model) from a real or an imaginary entity. A graphics model is a description of an object or entity in the computer. Modeling tools make creating and constructing complex 3D models simple. Physics-based modeling, also called physically based modeling, employs physics laws to construct models.
