What is Zdog?

in Miscellaneous on August 1, 2021

Zdog is a pseudo-3D engine for canvas & SVG.

Zdog helps you design as well as render 3D models. It makes 3D as well as flat shapes.

If you need some quick shapes like circles and rectangles, even in 3D, use this Zdog.

Not just rectangle and circles, but curves, polygon, arc, hemisphere, cone and many more.

Here’s their shapes guide.

Checkout their github repo.

A simplest way to link Zdog to your HTML is just add this script:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/zdog@1/dist/zdog.dist.min.js"></script>

Flat Circle Shape

If you want to add a flat circle, you can add this JavaScript:

// create illo
let illo = new Zdog.Illustration({
  // set canvas with selector
  element: '.zdog-canvas',

// add circle
new Zdog.Ellipse({
  addTo: illo,
  diameter: 80,
  stroke: 20,
  color: '#636',

// update & render

They have a pretty good getting started guide.

You can get as complex as you want.
