ABSTRACT

In this paper, we introduce a simulation tool for solar system using 3D animation tool MAYA. It accurately models solar system’s astronomical features, such as each planet’s orbital period, orbital speed, relative size, and texture, etc. This simulator visualize the solar system in 3D, which can be used to easily understands the system’s positioning and astronomical movements. With a conventional Maya modeling process using menus and UI windows, it is difficult to assign correct physical attributes of planets. We use Python script to set up each planet’s astronomical parameters. The proposed simulator is rendered as real as possible to be used for virtual reality and educational purpose.
