   RE: [xml-dev] Top 10 commercial XML vocabularies?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I've seen it done, but not for release.  In that case, 
the syntax wasn't extended; the viewer itself added 
the third dimension algorithmically and didn't reflect 
that in the data.

I am wondering if and when SVG the language will 
be extended.  It appears to be trivial to do for 
simple cases.  For a more robust 3D, X3D is available. 
I suppose it depends on the application when choosing 
here.  SVG gets a lot of press, has some very good 
authoring tools, etc., but remains 2D animation. 
X3D has the scene graph design, and some nice ancillary 
language/profiles such as H-Anim.  X3D was designed with 
profiles in mind.

One question might be, what will the CAD vendors choose 
as the basis for On the Web CAD data, or will they 
roll their own and we get three XML graphics languages?

It's possible to use SVG syntax as a base and extend it to cover three 
dimensional descriptions of sizing and placement of shapes, but how 
about implementing a viewer?
