Abstract: This tutorial will cover the wide range of methods and patterns used to develop interactive 3D applications based on royalty-free and open ISO-IEC standards. As a high-level scene graph language and API above the graphics library, Extensible 3D (X3D) provides a suite of standards including multiple data encodings and language bindings. With the same declarative programming idiom as the WWW, developers can build 2D + 3D Virtual and Mixed Reality applications that integrate with and publish to the WWW ecosystem.

This tutorial will explore the myriad of approaches, tool chains, and applications for building X3D objects and scenes. This includes: different formats and data types, approaches to multiple input devices and sensors, and deployment to different display devices, including 3D printers. Participants are not expected to have prior experience with X3D or VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language); a familiarity with markup languages and JavaScript is beneficial, but not required.
