1. IntroductionWelcome to the 3dhtml project site. Here you'll find the information you need to create 3D applications using DHTML. See Appendix 7 # Copyright for open source licensing information.
1.1 What is 3dhtml?3dhtml is a DHTML toolkit that supports the development of 3D applications.
The toolkit makes it easy for DHTML programmers to build their own animated three dimensional graphical applications with models, materials, transformations, modifiers, etc.
In 2001, we participated in the 5k Web Contest 2001 with our submission Heart3D, a DHTML 3D spinning heart, hovering over a horizon, its own reflection underneath. This was a small 3D engine within 5k. Though we didn't score too high in the end results, the idea had come up that we should turn this into a proper tool. And so we did.
You can skip the 3D Math Basics, but the Technical Background section is important to understand the special approaches 3dhtml is using.
Step through the tutorials and review the examples carefully (there's some more in the examples folder). Code yourself - inspecting and tweaking the examples might be a good idea.
