We have just released a new version of X3D-Edit that includes
DTD and Schema validation of X3D version 3.3 scenes.  Also included
is an editing panel for the new <unit> statement which allows
per-scene changes to base units for angle, length, force and
mass.  This editing pane includes an overridable selection
menu that conveniently offers a large number of common conversion
factors.  The <unit> capability lets scene data be recorded using
the original values, with consistent conversion back to baseline
radians/meters/newtons/kilograms throughout.

X3D-Edit and X3D Schematron are available online as open source.

Test reports and feedback welcome.

p.s. Over the next month I plan to add custom editing support for each
of the new volvis nodes.  I will also continue writing quality-assurance
tests for X3D scenes containing those nodes using the X3D Schematron
rule set.  It would be good to test these capabilities using the
medical working group example scenes published by VT.

all the best, Don
