X3D file extension - X3D graphics model

What is x3d file? How to open x3d files?

File type specification:

3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type icon 3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type

The x3d file extension is associated with X3D, a scalable and open software standard for defining and communicating real-time, interactive 3D content for visual effects and behavioral modeling. It can be used across hardware devices and in a broad range of applications including CAD, visual simulation, medical visualization, GIS, entertainment, educational, and multimedia presentations.

X3D provides both the XML-encoding and the Scene Authoring Interface (SAI) to enable both web and non-web applications to incorporate real-time 3D data, presentations and controls into non-3D content.

X3D is the successor to the Virtual Reality Modelling Language (VRML). It improves upon VRML with new features, advanced APIs, additional data encoding formats, stricter conformance, and a componentized architecture using profiles that allows for a modular approach to supporting the standard and permits backward compatibility with legacy VRML data.
