X3D 4.0 development is the center of discussion among Web3D working groups and community. We encourage members to participate in these important discussions as we extend X3D to make native authoring and use of X3D models fully integrated with HTML5.
Founded in 1997, we are an International, non-profit, member-funded, industry standards development organization. We develop and maintain royalty-free ISO standards for web-based 3D graphics. Our standard X3D (Extensible 3D) originated from VRML and is available in XML, Compressed Binary, and classic VRML formats. X3D is open, royalty free, extensible, interoperable, and runs on all platforms including desktops, tablets, and phones. Our members are from business, academia, government and the military.
Web3D is a nonprofit organization that develops and maintains the X3D, VRML, and H-Anim international standards. These are 3D graphics file formats and run-time specifications for the delivery and integration of interactive 3D data over networks. Web3D Consortium members work together to produce open, royalty-free and ISO-ratified capabilities for the Web.
