How to create a basic 3D scene?

To create a basic scene we need to initialize a scene object. You can think of a scene as a stage that will hold your production. Everything that will be visible to the viewer will be added to the scene.

A scene is an object that holds everything you will display

We need to add a camera object to the scene that will be our viewers perspective. Anything on the scene but not in the view of the camera won't be visible on your canvas.

Camera is essential for rendering your scene to canvas

We also need a light source for our objects to be visible.

Finally, we will create a basic shape(mesh), box.
