We offer here a couple of introductory X3D tutorials on X3D concepts. It serves as background material for Sunrize and X_ITE.

The only hardware and software requirement for most of the tutorials is a computer with the latest version of Sunrize or your favorite text editor and X_ITE. Sunrize has extensive documentation. It is the perfect environment to get started in creating sensational X3D scenes.
