Overview: The Web3D Consortium was formed to provide a forum for the creation of open standards for Web3D specifications, and to accelerate the worldwide demand for products based on these standards through the sponsorship of market and user education programs. The Web3D Consortium supports a collaborative environment and drives programs to develop and advance an open standard, royalty-free 3D interchange format based on XML, along with tools to represent and communicate 3D scenes and objects between diverse authoring and presentation hardware and software on the web, distributed networks, and mobile devices. The Web3D Consortium is maintaining and extending its standardization activities through coordinated efforts with the ISO and various liaison partners such as the W3C.
