The param element

The X3D element supports a param tag which allows to set configuration for the runtime.


The param element behaves just like any other HTML element. It must be nested below the scene element. For XHTML you can use the self-closing syntax, for HTML a closing tag is mandatory:

<param name=”showLog” value=”true” ></param> ...




The following table lists the parameters currently supported.

Parameter Values Default Description
showLog true, false false Hide or display the logging console
showStat true, false false Hide or display the statistics overlay
PrimitiveQuality High, Medium, Low, float High/1.0 Render quality (tesselation level) for Box, Cone, Cylinder, Sphere.
