Web3D Consortium member Vicomtech has been working to support volume rendering on the Web platform in any browser. MIRROR4ALL by Vicomtech uses DICOM Slices. This implementation is the construction of the density data from DICOM slices. Try this application, just drag and drop your DICOM images. As a contributor to the X3DOM open source library Vicomtech is helping to transition the X3D standard into the Web HTML5 ecosystem.

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. Join us in Los Angeles, California July 26-28, 2019 as we explore the many applications and benefits of publishing in the WWW ecosystem!

Join us at this year’s Annual ACM Web3D 2019 Conference, which unites Web3D researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, experimenters, artists and con
