X3D provides a presentation layer (a scene graph) to display animated, interactive 3D models from multiple sources and domains into web applications. The presentation pipeline is supported by X3D4 to make native authoring and use of X3D models fully integrated with HTML5.

New to X3D, learn more at WebX3D.orgMany X3D Example Archives are listed in the X3D Resources that demonstrate exactly how X3D nodes and scenes work. Thousands of open-source scenes are provided in all X3D encodings and licensed for for any use. You can browse example scenes individually online, or else download these archives via fully complete, separately installable .zip files.  Textbook archives X3D for Web Authors and the VRML 2.0 Sourcebook provide great examples for getting started.

Web3D YouTube Channel shows demonstrations of X3D and related standards. These are helpful resources that help "tell the story" in a compelling manner. X3D has broad adoption here are some of our member case studies.
