About X3D

X3D Working Groups: Public Pages

Current work in progress by X3D Working Group:

  • X3D version 3.3 is being finalized as an ISO Draft International Standard (DIS) for public review in summer 2012
  • X3D Binary Compression Capabilities and Plans
  • X3D MIME-Type in X3D Working Group to get official IETF MIME-Type recognition for X3D
  • Ongoing review of X3D specification comments and X3D implementation resources

Most X3D working groups are Web3D Consortium member-only, since members have agreed to the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy which effectively prevents any royalty-based technology from being adopted by X3D. This approach provides great value to the public, and also allows both companies and individual professionals to contribute to X3D directly as Web3D Consortium members.

Here are our X3D working group public pages:

Meanwhile each working group can still decide to place some work in the open. For example, all HTML5/X3DOM work is completely in the open. Web3D Members can also use the Web3D Members-Only Wiki

X3D Special Interest Groups: Public Pages

X3D Special Interest groups are open to all. This open approach provides great value to the public to explore new technologies and applications for X3D. It also allows both companies and individuals to contribute some technologies towards moving the X3D standard forward.

  • X3D and E-Learning Special Interest Group efforts are being discussed on the X3D mailing list
