The importance of 3D modeling in virtual reality and computational vision was a challenging subject and a long motivation for researchers. In this paper the modeling and visualization of a 3D elastic model using a mobile agents technology is presented. The 3D elastic model is represented with particles connected with elastic springs. The mobile agents are used to extract the forces information (internal and external forces) and change the elastic properties of the model, for a better representation and visualization. The expression of the spring elastic constants are presented and continuously updated based on the forces evaluation. A sailing ship modeled using the 3D elastic medium is simulated and visualized.
