If it is desired to download source code for only one or a few of the libraries visit ftp://www.h3dapi.org/pub/releases/source/

Here follows a description of each library and their changes.
H3DUtil is a utility library from the makers of H3DAPI. It is the library used by HAPI 1.2. H3DUtil documentation is avaliable at the documentation page.

New H3D nodes:

Fields added to existing nodes:

CoordinateDeformer - deviceAlgorithm
FakeHapticsDevice - deviceName
ForceField - torque
GlobalSettings - x3dROUTESendsEvent, loadTexturesInThread, renderMode
GraphicsOptions - useDefaultShadows, defaultShadowDarkness, preferVertexBufferObject, defaultShadowGeometryAlgorithm
H3DHapticsDevice - forceLimit, torqueLimit
H3DWindowNode - clipDistances
Inline - importMode, traverseOn
NavigationInfo - nearVisibilityLimit
OrthoViewpoint - retainAspectRatio
PhantomDevice - motorTemperatures
RenderProperties - alphaFunc, alphaFuncValue, blendFuncSrcFactorRGB,
blendFuncSrcFactorAlpha, blendFuncDstFactorRGB,
blendFuncDstFactorAlpha, blendEquationRGB,
blendEquationAlpha, blendColor
RuspiniRenderer - alwaysFollowSurface
SpringEffect - damping, positionInterpolation, interpolatedPosition
ToggleGroup - hapticsOnDevice
TransformInfo - outputGLMatrices, glModelViewMatrix, glModelViewMatrixInverse,
glProjectionMatrix, glProjectionMatrixInverse

Deprecated nodes:

New python functionality:
- Python created thread can run without H3D python code being run.
- Copy constructors to H3DInterface.Vec classes.
- new python functions:
- Python doxygen documentation added.
- New constructor for Matrix4f/4d to construct matrix given
translation, rotation and scale.

will now affect all connected devices and not just the first one. In python
deviceInfo must be set using a list (SFInt32 -> MFInt32).
- preRender/postRender C++ functions must be updated due to change of handling
OpenGL attribute stack (it is quite small).


H3DPhysics is a cross-platform implementation of the Rigid body physics component of X3D for use with H3D API. This version of H3DPhysics is tested against H3D API 2.2.0.

This toolkit used to be named RigidBodyPhysics.

H3DPhysics add rigid body physics models for use in H3D API. Which means that the user can build scenes in which object behave in a physically correct manner. Rigid body physics means that the objects are treated as solid, unchangeable sets of mass with a velocity. These bodies can be connected with the use of various form of joints, that allow one body's motion to affect another.

H3DPhysics for H3D API use ODE (Open Dynamics Engine) for Rigid body physics by default but can also be compiled with support for PhysX or Bullet as physics engines. Also partial support for PhysX3 is implemented.

For soft body physics Bullet is default. PhysX can also be used.

Changes for version 1.2.0:
- H3DPhysics additions to H3DAPIs python interface to get utility functions
in python when using H3DPhysics.
- The package is now called H3DPhysics instead of RigidBodyPhysics.
It contains the X3D RigidBodyPhysics component as well as a well thought
through suggestion for SoftBody capabilities. Of course H3DPhysics offers
haptics capabilities for soft bodies as well.
- New physics engine implemented. PhysX3, still in alpha state.
- New physics engine implemented. SOFA, still in alpha state.
- Fixes to make sure that gravity does not affect scene before all object
are included at startup.
- Support for SoftBodies using Bullet and PhysX. This support is still in beta.
Bullet implementation is fairly stable.
- Improved bullet support. Joint types are now supported with Bullet.


Source package for the toolkit MedX3D 1.3. Source builds against H3DAPI 2.2.0.

MedX3D is an implementation of Volume Rendering component of X3D.

MedX3D contains nodes for visual rendering of volume data, such as medical data from CT/MRI-scans. A correct X3D file using X3D volume rendering component nodes must specify a volume data node, a volume style node and the data for which to apply this style.
The existing volume data nodes are:
- VolumeData
- SegmentedVolumeData
- IsoSurfaceVolumeData

The styles to choose from are:
- BlendedVolumeStyle.
- BoundaryEnhancementVolumeStyle
- CartoonVolumeStyle
- ComposedVolumeStyle
- EdgeEnhancementVolumeStyle
- ISOSurfaceVolumeStyle
- MIPVolumeStyle, deprecated, use ProjectionVolumeStyle instead.
- OpacityMapVolumeStyle
- ProjectionVolumeStyle
- ShadedVolumeStyle
- SilhouetteEnhancementVolumeStyle
- ToneMappedVolumeStyle

The formats for volume data supported by MedX3D toolkit are:
- raw
- nrrd

MedX3D also supports preintegrated volume rendering, cubic filtering and stochastic jittering.

The MedX3D toolkit also contains various extra nodes not specified in the specification for the volume rendering component, such as an implementation of the Marching cubes algorithm and various nodes to extend the functionality of MedX3D.

MedX3D does not contain any specific haptic features.

Changes for version 1.3.0:
- Fixes to raycaster for AMD cards.
- CMake updates to configure properly for several compilers.
- Made sure every node has an example file.
- Changed color fields of several node to RGBA because of specification update.
- Restructuring to set volume renderer through renderer field in X3DVolumeNode.
- Added support for the enabled field in BlendedVolumeStyle
- Added support for orthographic projection to ray caster code
- Fixed a bug that would make the volume rendering disappear if one moved
into the volume.
- Added support for float textures in MarchingCubes node.

New nodes
- RayCaster
- MultiVolumeRayCaster
- SliceRenderer

Removed nodes:
- IsoSurfaceVolumeStyle


This is the source package of UI 2.2.0. It is compatible with H3DAPI 2.2.0. It contains the source code needed to build the UI. Cross platform, works on Windows/Linux/Mac OS. It is a collection of nodes that can be used to add a haptic user interface in a H3D scene.

Allow for creation of buttons, slider bars etc touchable by haptics device or mouse..

Changes for version 2.2.0:
- All UI nodes now have examples.
- Exposed appearance and textAppearance field for all labeled widgets.
- CMake update to support various compilers on various systems.
- Added isActive to SliderBar, indicates if sliderbar is in use.
