Back in 2017, I had a reason to build a solar system as a proof of concept for a 3D visualization. The solar system was supposed to leverage preprocessed data from a python backend. With ThreeJS, I was able to come up with a miniature solar systemhttps://quirky-chandrasekhar-357151.netlify.app/. Though, it contains the basic elements, it could do with a facelift.
I'll like to pick up the project again and try to make it better. A rough todo would be:
- Study the solar system (rotation, orbits, characteristics of each planetary body, etc)
- Do a refresher on ThreeJS (what's happening there these days)
- Study textures and materials
- Study lighting
- Look into shaders
