TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
3D modeling, such as the ability to view a rotatable image, has been
used for quite some time now, but I think the value of 3D displays
for technical documents is going to be very limited as long as glasses
are needed to view them, because switching back and forth between
viewing a screen with 3D glasses and viewing a real object without
them is a quick path to a splitting headache, especially if your
workspace has flourescent lighting. If someone manages to devise a
way to generate 3D without the need for glasses (think Star Trek
holodeck), that will be the game-changer.
