## WHAT IS IT?

The AB3DMT-3DModel model is created by [Donghua Chen](https://dhchenx.github.io).

This is a NetLogo 3D model to demonstrate the use of 3D point clouds from existing 3D models. This model is a part of our agent-based 3D modeling toolkit (AB3DMT) platform that facilitates the use of 3D modeling in NetLogo 3D simulation.

Date of model: 2022-08-03

## HOW IT WORKS

First, a csv file that contains 3D point information with the row format [id, x, y, z] is used. Please refer to our sample file "male.csv" for other 3D model transformation.

With the use of the csv file that contains point coordinates, we then develope a csv reader to tranform the point cloud into agent sets in NetLogo, thus you can see the 3D model in NetLogo 3D world.

Future 3D models should be firstly tranformed into a csv-formatted file as shown above and can be imported in NetLogo.

Due to a flexible world size needed to show the entire 3D model with different scales of coordinates respectively, we introduced a function to infer the world size needed to show the entire 3D model.

Finally, the 3D agent sets are created in the redefined NetLogo 3D world.

## HOW TO USE IT

When you download the NetLogo file and the "male.csv" sample file, you can follow the steps:

Step 1: Select model - please click the "select model" button and choose the "male.csv" file.

Step 2: Infer world size - after selecting the model, please click the button to infer world size according to the input file. This stage will not create agent sets. Or you can change values of sliders about world-size (x, y , z) and click the 'define-world-size' button to create your own world size.

Step 3: Load 3D model - after resizing the world size, we start to load the model and convert the points to agents in NetLogo 3D. Thus, a 3D-alike agent-based model is establshed.

Step 4: Press "go" button for a sample simuation that randomly visit neighbor agents on the agent-based 3D model.

## THINGS TO NOTICE

This model works in NetLogo 3D 6.2.1.

## THINGS TO TRY

With the established agent-based 3D model in NetLogo 3D, you can perform various agent-based methods to simulate cases in the 3D context with great complexity.

You may import other 3D models into NetLogo following the csv format.

## EXTENDING THE MODEL

We are working on the development of high-level agent-basel modeling in 3D environment, please refer to my GitHub project: https://github.com/dhchenx/AB3DMT.
