Career[edit | edit source]
Harvill worked on early virtual reality systems at VPL Research and wrote Swivel 3D during his spare time. Swivel 3D was marketed by Paracomp, where he became the VP of engineering in 1989. After Paracomp merged with MacroMind, he designed a new 3D modeler called MacroModel, which was released in 1992 by Macromedia. Macromodel evolved into Macromedia Extreme 3D, which was the most widely distributed 3D modeler in the industry at the time.
