How to create 3D basketball models

3d basketball

There are different sports arenas 3D models. The sports arena should have accurate dimensions that are close to the real ones. Let’s highlight the original dimensions that would be used for Basketball 3D Models at

The basketball court requires a lot of space, as the correct courts can be 94 feet long.

The size of the basketball courts in accordance with the rules of the NBA NCAA is 94 by 50 feet (28.6 by 15.24 m). The size of most school sites is 84 by 50 feet (25.6 by 15.24 m). In the case of a half-board, divide the length and width by 2.

Draw the main lines on the basketball 3D model set.

The side and front lines should have a thickness of 2 to 3 inches (5.08 to 7.62 cm) and surround the entire area. The central line runs horizontally from one side of the site to the other, strictly in its center. The free throw line is located just 15 feet (4.57 m) from the ring and has a length of 12 feet (3.65 m). The size of the penalty area is 12 by 19 feet (3.65 by 5.79 meters) (the top of the rectangle is the penalty line).

Draw the rest of the lines. This three-point line, the central circle, and the area, now your basketball court 3D model has real dimensions.

On Flatpyramid you will find different basketball 3D models like the 3D model of the basketball court with additional details: benches, net fencing.

For a basketball court 3D model, we need a ball too. The ball should have a spherical shape and should be orange with a traditional pattern of eight inserts and black seams. The circumference of the ball should be – 749-780 mm. Smaller balls are also used. In men’s games, the ball has a “size 7,” in women’s teams – “size 6”, in mini-basketball games – “size 5”. Such balls are divided into two types: indoor use only and universal, that is, suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

A big plus will be if the basketball is close to real analogs and has the brand and coloring of the manufacturer.

The largest manufacturers of balls:

Spalding – the manufacturer of sports equipment from Springfield (Massachusetts). The founder of the company Albert Spalding made the first ball in honor of James Naismith at the turn of the XIX-XX centuries. Since then, Spalding has been producing basketballs and official balls for the National Basketball Association since 1983. Spalding is the first company to produce a basketball for official games. Spalding balls are popular among basketball 3D models.

Molten Corporation is a Japanese manufacturer of sports goods, one of the largest manufacturers of balls for basketball, volleyball and football, one of the five leaders in this field. Molten balls for over 20 years are the official, exclusive basketball balls of the Olympic Games. These balls are popular in the basketball 3D models category too.

Most of these models on Flatpyramid have high-quality, and details. They are made in real sizes, with the correct proportions. Has a correct grid and customized realistic V-ray materials. The archive has all the necessary high-resolution textures.
