Khronos Releases WebGL 1.0 Specification to Bring Accelerated 3D Graphics to the Web without Plugins

The Khronos™ Group today released the final WebGL™ 1.0 specification to enable hardware-accelerated 3D graphics in HTML5 Web browsers without the need for plug-ins. WebGL defines a JavaScript binding to OpenGL® ES 2.0 to allow rich 3D graphics within a browser on any platform supporting the industry-standard OpenGL or OpenGL ES graphics APIs. WebGL has the support of major silicon and browser vendors including Apple, Google, Mozilla and Opera with multiple browsers already shipping with WebGL implementations including the beta releases for Mozilla Firefox 4.0, all channels of Google Chrome 9.0, an Opera preview build, and Apple Mac OS Safari nightly builds.

WebGL modelling tool for 3D printing

Benjamin Nortier from 1011ltd.com is now in possession of a MakerBot Thing-O-Matic 3D Printer. After surveying the 3D modelling software, disappointment settled in, and Benjamin has decided to build a WebGL 3D modelling tool. The tool must be accessible--Open Source, Powerful--using boundary representation (BRep), and Modern--internet-ready with a solid RESTful API. Complete with a sneak peak, and proof of concept, this project is worth following.
