What Is Three.js?

Three.js is a JavaScript library that is used for creating and displaying 3D graphics on web browsers.

It’s built on top of WebGL, which is a powerful tool that unlocks the ability to build really innovative and interactive 3D experiences directly within a web browser.

So what does that all mean…? It means Three.js will allow the creative side of your mind run wild by enabling you to build websites with mind-blowing, immersive 3D experiences that have the ‘wow’ factor.

One of the main advantages of using Three.js is that it significantly simplifies the process of creating 3D graphics using WebGL. While WebGL is a very powerful API for creating 3D graphics, it can be quite challenging to learn and use effectively.

Three.js abstracts away much of the complexity of WebGL, making it much easier and more accessible for developers who are new to 3D graphics programming.

By using Three.js, JavaScript developers can create complex 3D scenes and animations that would’ve been difficult – or even impossible – to achieve with traditional 2D web technologies like HTML and CSS.

The library provides a wide range of tools and features, such as support for lighting, materials, cameras, and geometry, which makes it easy to create truly impressive 3D visualizations and games.

Who Should Learn Three.js?

Frankly we think everyone should learn Three.js…because it’s just really awesome! But if you’re looking to find your dream career then here’s a few of the big roles that Three.js is useful for:

WEB DEVELOPERS: If you’re a current or aspiring web developer, you’ll be able to use Three.js to create stunning visualizations, interactive infographics, and other engaging 3D content for your websites.

Plus with the growing popularity of virtual and augmented reality, Three.js is also becoming increasingly important for creating immersive experiences that allow users to explore 3D environments in real-time.

The ability to create “traditional” 2D webpages is a common skill amongst web developers, especially with the rise in popularity of many user-friendly no-code website builders. But the ability to create immersive 3D experiences on the web with Three.js allows developers to really stand out from the crowd.

Personally, I built my own 3D portfolio using Three.js and became internet-famous from it. The amount of requests I get to build websites that mimic the look and feel of my 3D portfolio is off the charts. And I rarely self-promote or spend time generating leads, the work speaks for itself. This is a great example of how the unique, powerful Three.js skills are highly in-demand for web developers.

GAME DEVELOPERS: If you want to get into game development then Three.js is an amazing skill to add to your toolkit.

Why? Because Game Developers can leverage Three.js to create rich, immersive games that run directly in the browser, without the need for users to download or install any additional software.

The Three.js library provides a variety of features and tools that can be used to render game scenes and is implemented in a way that supports industry standard 3D workflows and rendering pipelines.

VR DEVELOPERS: The emerging virtual reality (VR) space is also a growing area where Three.js is gaining popularity.

With its ability to create 3D graphics that can be rendered in real-time, Three.js can be used to create immersive virtual reality experiences that can be accessed directly through something like the Oculus Quest’s web browser via WebXR, without the need to install a custom app.

3D ARTISTS: Three.js is also useful for 3D artists who want to showcase their work on the web.

With Three.js, 3D artists can create interactive galleries and portfolios that allow users to explore their work in real-time. The Three.js library provides support for industry standard file formats and rendering pipelines
