As announced during the Web3D conference, the X3DOM team is happy to announce the launch of an open-source component editor project, which is now being hosted on GitHub. The component editor is based on X3DOM, and it shows how to create a simple Web-based editor with X3DOM and jQuery.
Current Features include:
If you are interested, feel free to check it out, or even to contribute to this project!
Researchers at the Advanced Community Information Systems (ACIS) Group at RWTH Aachen University use X3DOM to realize a collaborative 3D viewer for teaching anatomy.
Aim of the project is the creation, deployment and utilization of a pool of digital 3D anatomic models for accessing them anywhere and anytime over the Web using a standard Web browser.
You can give it a try by checking out the prototype!
With the VolumeRC page, X3DOM developers at vicomtech have created a gallery of volume renderings, using the X3DOM volume rendering component.
Check out the demos, which include switching between different volume rendering styles and interactive editing of transfer functions.

think project!, the provider of the project platform by the same name and expert for cross-enterprise collaboration, has developed a solution for the quick utilization of digital building data. In terms of visualization, think project! is now supported by Fraunhofer IGD. To allow for high-performance visualization of BIM data, while still providing fine-granular user interaction, X3DOM is the framework of choice.

The 3D Scene Search Engine (3DSSE) by the Multimedia Research Group of Athena Research Center uses X3DOM for visualizing captured Scenes.
Dive into it by searching the database – an empty query will show all available content – and navigate through the scenes here. (You can, for example, use X3DOM’s fly mode by pressing ‘f’)

Just another example of what people do with X3DOM:
Available through Mathworks’ MATLAB Central, the function FIGURE2XHTML exports your 3D Matlab figure to an X3DOM scene, which can directly be viewed inside your browser!
3D printing can be an expensive process, and simulation models exist to predict how a printed object would look like. To visualize such simulated objects, the cuttlefish 3D printing project uses X3DOM.
Check it out here!
Getting CAD models visualized on the Web usually requires some work, as CAD representations, such as BReps, differ from visualization formats, such as X3DOM’s BinaryGeometry or the X3D IndexedFaceSet.
To solve problems like this, you can use PythonOCC, a python package that comes with powerful CAD functionality. This includes, for instance, exporting STEP to X3D with just a few lines of code.
For a quick look, check out some simple examples here!
The smart interactive 3D Product visualization is using X3DOM, and it is running with common desktop PCs as well as with touch devices. See an example video here.
The guys at treebuild.com created this little application, which allows you to paint and share your own 3D Easter Eggs or print them directly with Shapeways.

The American National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has just made public an X3DOM version of the Digital Library of Mathemetical Functions (DLMF). VRML content has been successfully migrated to X3DOM, so that every WebGL-capable browser can now be used to inspect high-quality visualizations of mathematical functions from the DLMF.
Here are some starting points to get an impression:
Another interesting external Showcase, which combines parametric modelling with dynamic asset management. The IG.Creator from Intelligentgraphics allows creating complex catalog applications with a data-driven design.
We added the Siena Cathedral to the showcases. The demo comes with a nice animated camera flight through the wonderful building. In the near future, we hope to add more showcases and demos to the dedicated demo page, which is currently http://examples.x3dom.org/.
The Siena Cathedral can be found here.
Another Fraunhofer project uses X3DOM to render a 3D web visualization: CityServer3D. The technology of the CityServer3D consists of a geo-database, a server with numerous interfaces for the import and export of the data and applications for the development of landscape models. This data can also be presented in a web browser using X3DOM to render the visualization. For instance, the city of Darmstadt:
This representation has been rendered using the CityServer3D VIEW Service which provides complete 3D GIS applications based on integrated 2D and 3D data. Moreover, it offers direct access to geodata via a powerful web service interface.

You can do this of course with arbitrary hardware (think of the LEAP support or the Kinect), but please bear in mind that this is only a preview at the moment.
You can find the tutorial here. Enjoy!
VRMath 2.0 (VRMath2) is a Virtual Reality learning environment (VRLE) and an online learning community. It employs the powerful ideas of 3D Logo Microworld and Web 2.0 technologies for learning mathematics and was created by Andy Yeh, Australia.
In VRMath2, everyone can Design, Create and Share their 3D virtual worlds. There are also design challenges you can take up and blog later right here in VRMath2 website.
The scalable SimScale platform uses X3DOM as viewer frontend for visualizing the results of online numerical simulations on CAD data.

Yet another interesting industrial show case from Frank Lamack, T-Systems, Germany. Goal of this solution is to build a web 3d based environment for distributed teams to enable collaborative design reviews or co-browsing with customers for sales, configuration and consulting sessions – on one common 3d product model: Without any plug-in or additional software licences – simply via web. Upcoming features: dimensioning, annotation on parts or co-design-editor, to transform 3d-shapes.
T-Systems Multimedia Solutions (MMS) develops web-based solutions for large corporations and medium-sized enterprises. Around 1.000 employees serve customers from every sector, developing web innovations for services used in domestic and commercial digital contexts. This includes e-commerce, information management and knowledge management. The actual developing team develops visual configuration solutions, that use 3D construction data and product meta data in combination with rule-based configurations for immersive e-sales and e-commerce applications for web or mobile devices.
This external showcase developed by the Virtual Reality Center Production Engineering (VRCP) in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology (IWU) shows an innovative way to present complex content with the use of 3D models. 3DWebpresenter makes it obvious that X3DOM can also visualize complex 3D scenes combined with interactive Web elements. While navigating intuitively through a virtual factory, further information of the results of 30 projects of the Innovation Alliance “Green Carbody Technologies” can be accessed.
