55 Realistic 3d Models

3D modeling and design is one of the most interesting and realistic innovations of 21st century. 3D modeling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of a 3D surface of the object using software. The model can also be physically created using 3D Printing devices.

The result is so realistic that at times that it can be easily confused with a photograph. In this post I have collected pictures of realistic 3D models. Enjoy!
