About the X3D Model Exchange

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is having major influence and impacts on future Navy and Marine operations.


The goal of the Model Exchange is to help Navy and Marine Makers learn how to find, produce, share and print 3D models.  The X3D Graphics International Standard enables archival publishing of geometric data with corresponding metadata for long-term use and re-use.
