Bitmanagement introduces "BS Content Studio". The new tool for the interactive 3D web is ready for download. The authoring tool allows the production of 3D content in browser and apps faster and without special knowledge of real-time 3D. The new graphical interface exports platform and browser independent to Web3D standards X3D, X3D binary, VRML and X3DOM using WebGL without plug-ins.

The German 3D software developer Bitmanagement Software GmbH who are in the board of directors of the Web3D Consortium in Mountain View, California, USA has released the new authoring tool "BS Content Studio", which enables a wide audience to create interactive and Internet ready 3D content.
