as discussed earlier this week, we do have the Universal Media Materials
and Panoramas available.  We adapted the Materials and made it part of the
X3D-Edit interface for editing material values.  pretty cool. reading in the
.xml/.x3d to autocreate .java was an interesting project and it still works.

There are some tools in the Savage model archives, for example


If others want to add .x3d versions of clip art etc. in the Basic archives,
then great.  This is a Web3D Consortium resource maintained on SourceForge.


i am experimenting with adding useful Inline and Prototype nodes to X3D-Edit
on a draggable palette.  Two of each offered in today's build update.

all of the X3dForWebAuthors slidesets are in .odp OpenOffice Impress
format, with secondary output in .pdf.
