X3D Extensible 3D File

An open-source and royalty-free XML based format that was developed by the Web3D Consortium. X3D has many applications and benefits for the 3D graphics industry, especially in relation to web applications. Here are some of the key features and advantages of X3D:

  • VRML Replacement: X3D serves as an advanced extension and a replacement for the original VRML file format, which was primarily used in web applications. VRML stands for Virtual Reality Modeling Language, and it was a standard format for describing interactive 3D scenes on the web.
  • X3DB File Format: For optimized file sizes, you have the option to use the binary X3DB file format instead of the default text-based X3D file. X3DB is a compressed version of X3D, which reduces the file size and improves the loading speed, an important factor for web applications.

X3D File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application seamlessly handle X3D file import and export, ensuring smooth data exchange and compatibility. This enables you to convert your 3D models from various formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS, STEP, and more, to X3D and vice versa.


WRL Virtual Reality Modeling File

A standard for creating 3D interactive web content and rendering it in a web browser. It has the following features:

  • ASCII Format: The format is text-based and uses a WWW-oriented syntax. It can store 3D objects and their attributes, such as light sources, materials, textures, and world transformations. These attributes are essential for rendering the 3D scene in a web browser.
  • X3D Successor: The format was developed in the 1990s and became an ISO standard in 1997. It was later superseded by X3D, which is an XML-based format that supports VRML features and provides several extensions. X3D is also an ISO standard and the current state-of-the-art for 3D web content.

VRML File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application allow you to import and export VRML files, and convert them into various other file formats. You can use our products to work with VRML files outside of the web browser and integrate them with other 3D applications. However, please note that material textures are only processed for IndexedFaceSet shape geometries.
