Comparison of 3D dust radiative transfer models of nine randomly selected galaxies in the SIMBA M25N512 cosmological simulation (at z = 0; blue) compared against 1D dust screen models (orange). By and large, screen models do not capture the complexities of the star–dust ISM as 3D models do, and therefore overattenuate the UV and optical radiation.
