Thanks for writing. Previous discussions aboit 3d have usually been about
x3d and cml, but i think most people just want a 3d format supported, and
dont care which one (to speak from a wikimedia as opposed to a mediawiki
Currently we have a support for .g (BRL-CAD's binary file format)
files, but BRL-CAD has a long list of supported formats so anything
that BRL-CAD can import will be supported. BRL-CAD can export files as
X3D but it cannot import them yet :( . The file formats that BRL-CAD
can import are ASCII, AutoCad DXF, Elysium Neutral Facetted, EUCLID,
FASTGEN, IGES, Jack, NASTRAN, STL, TANKILL, Unigraphics and Viewpoint
which can then be internally converted to .g file and exported to .obj
for 3D online geometry viewer.
I think will be good idea to investigate, if there open 3D formats, i.
e. non-proprietary and not covered by patents.
