We are seeing an explosion of interactive 3D content on the Web with WebGL now widely supported by browsers, tools such as X3D, X3DOM, X_ITE, three.js, glTF, and A-Frame. Today, anyone can create Web3D content for virtual any domain or application. Commercial game engines such as Unity, Unreal, and Castle3D offer more ways to integrate open specifications and Standard formats in their applications.
