Chapter 6. Advanced Geometries and Binary Operations

In the previous chapter, we showed you all the basic geometries provided by Three.js. Besides these basic geometries, Three.js also offers a set of more advanced and specialized objects. In this chapter, we'll show you these advanced geometries and cover the following subjects:

  • How to use advanced geometries such as THREE.ConvexGeometry, THREE.LatheGeometry, and THREE.TubeGeometry.
  • How to create 3D shapes from 2D shapes using THREE.ExtrudeGeometry. We'll do this based on a 2D shape drawn using functionality provided by Three.js, and we'll show an example where we create a 3D shape based on an externally loaded SVG image.
  • If you want to create custom shapes yourself, you can easily amend the ones ...
