Abstract

More and more researchers in a variety of fields are turning to virtual worlds for 3D simulations and scientific modeling. The use of virtual worlds in this manner offers many benefits. However, the critical task of creating 3D objects for a simulation model is still a manual process, which can be time consuming. Our research concentrates on creating a process that allows for the automatic population of 3D objects in virtual worlds for researchers.
