3D Engines

3D Engines are systems used for virtual computer simulations, also known as three-dimensional (3D) engines or gaming engines. Video games frequently use game engines, but there are also other non-entertainment uses for them. 

An immersive virtual environment is made possible by the various functional areas of a 3D engine. A gaming engine’s rendering module computes a scene’s visual look, while a physics module defines how various objects should interact. To increase the sense of realism, some engines also have additional features like scripting and artificial intelligence.
