A web-based garden planning tool designed with accessibility and ease of use as a key focus
Garden Planner is a web-based 3D garden planning tool aimed at casual users who are not experienced in traditional complex planning tools. The 3D environment allows the user to truly visualise what the garden will look like, with features such as a first person camera and a dynamic lighting system.
After looking for a pack of 3D assets to use for the project, I found they were all either technically or stylistically incompatible or too expensive. For this reason, I decided to take my first step into 3D modelling since my undergraduate degree. I used Blockbench, a simplistic modelling tool, coincidentally made using Three.js, to create all the 3D assets in the game with a unified, blocky aesthetic.
