My interest in X3D comes with computer-aided engineering viewpoint. I  
have been working with the STEP standard (ISO 10303) for manufacturing  
information exchange. STEP, among its many parts, offers neutral  
formats for CAD (STEP AP 203, AP 214) data as well as for NC machining  
(STEP-NC or AP 238) and other application areas. Most commercial CAD  
packages have the capability to export models as STEP AP-203 files. I  
have developed a web-based application for extracting the information  
content in STEP files (at http://spri.kshell.com ) and am interested  
in using X3D to deliver viewable 3-D models as content. I already have  
the ability to translate boundary representation models encoded in  
STEP files to X3D (xml encoding files), albeit using the trimmed nurbs  
surface nodes which are not uniformly implemented among browsers.

I recently joined the web3d consortium, some areas I'm interested in  
learning about, and perhaps contributing to, are:
-- support of the NURBS component
-- working with X3D content in a web browser environment, particularly  
working with dynamically generated content
