Founded in 1997, the Web3D Consortium is an international, non-profit, member-funded, industry standards development organization. The Web3D Consortium with its members builds and maintains widely applicable X3D standards (X3D is an ISO-ratified, royalty-free open standards file format and run-time architecture to represent and communicate 3D scenes and objects.) through well-coordinated Liaison Partnerships. Members collaboratively develop the X3D standards and tools making them widely adopted by digital content creation industries across diverse markets.
For over 20 years Web3D Conferences are sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH in cooperation with Web3D Consortium.
The Web3D Consortium promotes deployment of X3D standards for the communication of 3D scenes in multiple applications, use cases, platforms, and verticals. Members collaboratively develop the X3D standards and tools making them widely adopted across diverse markets for academia, government, industry, and individuals. The Web3D Consortium offers robust ISO standardized 3D functionality and long-term stability for enterprise solutions and interoperability with other standards.
