Abstract
Extensible 3D (X3D) graphics is a collection of open-standards that define a system that integrates network-
enabled 3D graphics and multimedia. X3D applications are real-time, interactive, animated systems that can run
in stand-alone or networked environments. This tutorial will focus on a commonly used subset of the complete
functionality that is encoded in XML. X3D has three encodings XML (.x3d), Classic VRML (.x3dv), and Com-
pressed Binary (.x3db). During the tutorial, the participants will learn hands-on how to build an X3D world,
while getting a detailed understanding of the capabilities of X3D. Participants will also be given the latest X3D
software development kit which contains a wide variety of free and commercial plug-ins, authoring tools, and
content.
