Getting Started

Where Do I Start?

The first thing that you need to do is to download & install SceneMax3D’s Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

Click Here To Install The IDE

When the IDE starts for the first time, a “Hello World” test program will be created.  Press on the “Run Program” button to check that everything is working as expected.

SceneMax3D depends on Java run-time so in case it is not installed you will be directed to Oracle’s web site for installing. Make sure you install the 64 bit version of Java for best performance.
Once you press on the “Run Program” button you should see an animated flying dragon with the text “Hello World” printed on the left side of the screen

Congratulations! You just run your first SceneMax3D program. Let’s examine “Hello World” the code:

sys.print “hello world”
this simply prints the text “Hello World” using a printing channel named “sys“. you can give the printing channel whatever name you like. solar system
this command presents a live background of sky, sun, moon and stars as well as some moving clouds

d is a dragon
this command creates (and presents) a new object name “d” of type “dragon loop
this command runs the “fly” animation of the dragon in a loop so it never stops
