Universal 3D (U3D) is a format that allows 3D Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) applications to export the on-screen interactive experience to mainstream office applications that support the specification. *Through the 3D Industry Forum (3DIF), Intel Corp is working with other companies to develop a standard file format and a sample runtime libraries designed to support the efficient reuse of 3D data in mainstream applications. The Universal 3D specification and sample implementation will simplify the transformation of complex 3D data into a format that can be streamed, compressed and viewed on affordable, nonproprietary software/hardware platforms while providing a high quality viewing experience.
