    3D Modelling + Graphics Cards

    For one of my classes, I would like to do a presentation on 3d modelling and graphics cards but I have to incorporate it into programming, and its relevance. Does anyone know of any good sites, which explain what type of programming is needed for graphics cards and 3D modelling.

    I did a search, couldnt find any spefics though.

    OpenGL, DirectX - these are the main API's

    3d graphics card makers sometimes have API's for their hardware ( but mostly they will support DirectX and OpenGL for this.

    Just look for sites about OpenGL, DirectX or there's a good one called Allegro but that really is just a wrapper for DirectX and OpenGL.

    Do you have a 3D modeling program?
    try this free one...
