Basx3D - 3D the HTML WayThe initial version of Basx3DTM 3D the HTML Way has been released. This version is pre-alpha and is released to assist in the development of the next release of X3D V4. Basx3DTM is a 3D scene builder using declarative 3D nodes. It is entirely written in JavaScript and uses X3DOM as the underlying library. The application is open-source and will be soon available as a download. The license is the same as X3DOM - dual-licensed under MIT and GPL license. The online version is available for testing and expirmentation at

As this is a pre-alpha release, the capabilities are limited to just those to test out and develop ideas for X3D V4. The current feature set allows the

  • insertion of geometric primatives (box, cone, cylinder, sphere)
  • setting object Material properties
  • setting scene background color or images (using the set from the Universal Media Panoramas)
  • inline selected X3D models
  • saving work (requires manual copy&paste)
  • restoring work (requires manual copy&paste)

The next feature to be added is key-frame animation.

Development is on-going and includes User and Developer documentation. The Developer documentation includes a roadmap for further development. If you would like to be part of this, please contact Daly Realism.
