The term 3D is the nickname given to refer to three-dimensional space. Three-dimensional imagery is how we see ourselves and the world around us. The third dimension is solid and the images appear tangible, or touchable. A two-dimensional image, in contrast, would be a cartoon drawn on a piece of paper. The image is flat and lacks the depth that characterizes real and tangible objects.

The term 3D has become a popular attractor in entertainment technology and media. Many films and shows developed for consumer use have been designed for 3D viewing. This particular viewing style makes it seem as if objects are coming out of the movie screen and are right before the eyes of the viewer. They are typically viewed with the aid of special 3D glasses. The popularity of 3D theater entertainment gave way to the rise of 3D televisions. Now, consumers can view 3D movies and videos in their own homes with the aid of their own personal 3D glasses. Games have also been utilizing 3D effects in their technology as well. Aside from 3D effects used for movie screens and televisions, 3D technology has long been used in books and other graphic paper products. Comic books produced in 3D were a popular item long before 3D televisions and games were introduced into homes. 

With improvements in digital technology came the 3D graphic images and scanners. Scientists and technicians use this technology to create items, analyze images on a more detailed scale, design computer graphics, and many other tasks. Specialized types of 3D scanners are also used in medicine to treat and detect dysfunctions in the body.

Here are some of the most commonly used pieces of equipment that use 3D technology:
  • 3D printers
  • 3D scanners
  • 3D televisions
  • 3D image generating software
