All of the aforementioned cases are from the group of the 3D designs, have which been realized with some techniques, corresponding to the 2D world; Such as utilization of dotted curves to apply the depth to the design and similar schemes.
My concern is :
Is it possible to produce 3D images, with the quality approaching to the output of the specialized CAD softwares, like 3D studio Max, Maya, etc?!
Here is a typical scientific artwork, realized by 3D studio Max:
Is it possible to reproduce that by TikZ, actually, with all of the highlighting, shadow processing and the other applied methods?!
