Active X3D Working Groups: Public Pages

X3D Working Group

The X3D Working Group is the main forum for coordinating all X3D specification activities. Working group teleconferences are every Wednesday at 08-0900 pacific time, 16-1700 GMT on the Web3D teleconference line.

This group performs ongoing review of X3D specification comments and X3D implementation resources.

  • Cochairs: Don Brutzman and Leonard Daly
  • ISO Convener: Dick Puk

Current activities:

X3D and Augmented Reality Continuum (ARC) Working Group: AR Extensions for X3D

X3D CAD Working Group: Computer Aided Design (CAD) Extensions for X3D

X3D and HTML5 design efforts and Declarative 3D Community Group

X3D H-Anim Working Group: Humanoid Animation (H-Anim)

X3D Medical Working Group: Volume visualization and Medical uses

X3D Earth Working Group X3D Earth and Geospatial representations

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.

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
