Welcome to Now3D site
Now3D is a program for Windows platform written in Visual Basic 6.
Now3D (at the beginning called Planets) born in 1997 as application for the planets and stars visualization. Then, thanks to the first success in the 3D Graphic field, I have decided to leave the first idea to concentrating myself towards more difficult subjects.
I'm an analyst programmer with a passion for 3D computer graphics, and I'm developing Now3D with the hope that this program will give to many of you, a sprint to enter in the world of 3D computer graphics.
