COPPERCUBE 2 arrived on the scene this week boasting 'No programming necessary' to create interactive 3D applications and publish to WebGL on Mac or Windows. Simply import your 3D models or scene, setup the cameras, controllers etc and click Publish. You can try out the free 14 day trial as we did. Within a few seconds we exported a sample scene that worked great in Flash, but unfortunately has a little way to go still in WebGL.
You can now specify the mesh and material to use for a given pixel size.
Along with the OpenGL, OpenCL, COLLADA and WebGL slide sets from the Khronos related SIGGRAPH BOFs, Mobile slides have just been uploaded.
