There are a few of these about now. I recommend downloading the Tutorial PDFs from the Java3d part of the sun site. There are also a lot of general tutorials at and a set of good introductory lessons by kevglass at (click on "tutorials"). There is also one by me at - between that lot you can probably get yourself started.

Web Animation with VRML,  Java3d & pure Java

Tutorials from Sun: Java3d & everything else

Sun also provides many demos with full source code
and if you installed the JDK ( Java Development Kit )
and not just the RTE they are in your $JAVA_HOME
directory under: demo/java3d

For learning 3d, Java, and Java3d its great to combine

Java & VRML using both Java 1.1 engines like and __ also __ Java3d with

several of the competing VRML Loaders for Java3d
including the old reliable Sun VRML Loaders and
the newer ones from so you create
relatively complex animations with relative ease
and have them fully portable with 'pure' Java solutions
or you can use Java3d ( with the __ same __ VRML data )
and get better-faster animation with Java3d by utilizing
the full power of the hardware acceleration of the great
graphics card you paid such a high price for ( something
'pure' Java engines can't do ).

Here's an interactive Java3d web demo with Sourcecode:

Im "very often" on the Sun-Homepage, and the other demo-sourcecode is too complicated for me as a Java3D-beginner (I have some knowledge in Java-AWT and Java-Swing, in which I usually write my programms).

How have you learned java3D-programming (book, ... ?).

Thanks never the less Bischi
(I hope my english ins't too bad)
