08/02/2014 - 3DzzD and this website are now 10 years old ! Happy birthday :)

The java 3DzzD project's development has been discontinued a while ago, you may use WebGL instead.

WebGL is now very well supported by all browsers even on Android mobile device and will be probably in some times supported by Apple devices too.

For 3D projects, questions, advices, etc... please visit DzzD society website at

Back to the story :

- 3DzzD is was a software 3d engine including a full 3d scenegraph, a physics engine, and all necessary tools to manage 3D scenes on HTML Web page. It can be used in full software mode and/or can use hardware support.

05/09/2005 - alpha tests began yesterday and beta release will be downloadable in about 3-4 weeks, first version will include the followings features:

3DS loading : material,hierarchy, smoothing group,mesh,camera,lights

- Diffuse: diffuse map, detail map, alpha,( light maps : by combinaison of diffuse and detail map), perpixel mipmapping, 2*2 anisiotropie, bilinear filtering.
- Specular: color, power,level with real phong shading (only one light in first release)

Scene management:
- Hierarchy between mesh,camera,light as in 3DS file
- Time-based 3D animation : mesh/camera/light
- Time-based material animaion: alpha, color, specular
- Time-based : mapping animation
- Clipping box : xmin,ymin,zmin,xmax,ymax,zmax
- Camera : zoom, FOV, screen size, zclipping.

- Skybox : can be export->import from terragen software
- Antialias
- Double buffering
- Perfect zBuffer
- Unlimited world size (double precision)
- Collision detection and response (Time-based!)
- Fully java1.1 compatible sun and microsoft JVM
- Streaming textures and objects loading possible even at runtime
- Small applet size (less than 50ko for first beta release)
- Perfect perspective for lighting and texture : interpolated with 1/z
- Free for non-commercial
- And also Very simple to use!

More features will come with other release like fogging, Env-mapping, etc...

08/09/2005 - Online 3D Lanscape demo : Online 3D Lanscape an other demo 3D Object

01/09/2005 - New demos : Online 3D Dynamic lighting and Online 3D Transparency

01/08/2005 - Real Time Web 3D API release is pushed back on a later date.

16/06/2005 - the site 3dcafe changed, samples URL (export) below do not work anymore, you will find other samples there :, but also how you can export from your web site.

07/06/2005 - 3DzzD API will be available in 6 weeks, new demos will be added soon.

01/05/2005 - 3DzzD API is started, this one will be soon downloadable.

30/04/2005 - The hierarchy of the objects and the use of pivots cause errors. This problem is identified and will be corrected soon. New functionalities will be added at the same time including transparency and Env-Mapping.

29/04/2005 - Additional tests are necessary. The opening of the studio is thus pushed back on a later date. There remains however possible to carry out simple presentations with the current version.

28/04/2005 - Export of a 3d model from a Web site towards 3DzzD studio!
click here to know more

27/04/2005 - It is now possible to upload a Zip file directly in the studio including the model and textures of the object.

25/04/2005 - The bug occurring at the time of the loading is now corrected.
