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.
Join the Web3D Consortium at our Virtual Siggraph 2022 Birds of the Feather(BOF) session on July 26th from 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM Pacific, for a discussion on how Web3D technology contributes to the Metaverse.
Papers submission deadline extended to July 30th, 2002. Join your fellow 3D Graphics technologists at the Web3D 2022 Conference(in-person and on-line) Nov 2-4, 2022 in Evry(Paris), France, as we share and discuss how Web3D innovations contribute to the Metaverse. This year's theme is "Connected 3D Universes" providing new visions on how an unified Metaverse may become a game-changer for the future of 3D communication and the role Web3D technologies will play. Learn and Share your latest 3D work! We welcome all topics related to Web/mobile 3D content creation, publishing technology, tools, Virtual worlds, Metaverse and related studies.
The Metaverse Standards Forum provides a unique opportunity to achieve secure, collaborative (interoperable), durable, and pervasive Mixed-Reality content. The Web3D Consortium members bring decades of prior research into 3D graphics interoperability and WWW ecosystem standardizations; integration with ISO-IEC Extensible 3D (X3D) Version 4 will bring quick wins that catalyze new value and provide crucial assurances for Metaverse creators and participants.
Web3D Consortium's position paper on the confusion with the term ‘Metaverse’ and the key issues that have kept the Metaverse from manifesting the last two decades: user experience and corporate cooperation.
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 HAnim 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.
