This week, Dr.
Virginia Tech and Web3D Consortium hosted and presented demonstrations, discussions, and opportunities of emerging Web3D technologies at the Virginia Tech Research Center in Arlington Virginia on March 25th 2014.
Web3D members will be participating in this event; discussing and collecting use cases and requirements for Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC) and building information management/modeling (BIM/M).
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.
The Web3D Consortium members have reached a milestone in efforts to continue extending the Extensible 3D (X3D) International Standard. Working group efforts to define and develop X3D version 4 have made excellent progress, continuing the evolution of open, royalty free ISO standards for 3D graph
Virginia Tech will be exhibiting and presenting at the Supercomputing 2013 Conference in Denver, Colorado during the week of 18 November 2013.
Don Brutzman from the Web3D Consortium attended the AEC Hackathon from 8-10 November on the campus of Facebook. He gave a quick survey of capabilities and opportunities for this community when content is exported to X3D.
The Web3D Consortium is offering the community an opportunity to review the ISO/IEC 19775-2 (Abstract SAI) Draft International Standard (DIS) ballot Comment Document.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has approved Web3D Consortium's requests to register new MIME media types for X3D media in the XML encoding.
The primary MIME media type is model/x3d+xml. This identifier shall be used when sending XML-encoded X3D content using MIME.
Many people know about the X3D scene HelloWorld.x3d which shows the basic structure and syntax of the language.
