Package Vrml2Sourcebook.Chapter05PositioningShapes
This chapter describes how to position shapes within an XYZ world coordinate system by adding a parent Transform node.
Rotations about each axis are counterclockwise using the righthand rule. Nested Transform nodes can translate, rotate and scale shapes relative to each other in 3D space.
These X3D scenes are adapted directly from the original VRML 2.0 Sourcebook chapter examples. Also available: Introduction to VRML97 SIGGRAPH98 course notes.
This X3D VRML2 Sourcebook Chapter 05 Positioning Shapes examples archive is online.
The X3D Java Scene Access Interface (x3djsail) package provides concrete classes for each X3D node and statement.
