I've decided to attempt to learn Java3D. I have a book which a lot of people seem to recommend, "Killer Game Programming in Java". The problem is the book starts off a bit too advanced and I was wondering if anyone knew a good place to get tutorials. I have already finished the tutorials on java3d.org.

Java3D, while a mature API, is no longer supported by Sun/Oracle. Here is a link, but the forums it references were pulled down years ago.

People started using JOGL with OpenGL when this happend, and that would be the route I would use to learn more about 3D graphics and Java. These are the most popular engines:

http://jmonkeyengine.com/

Here is information about JOGL:

For tutorials:

At the bottom of each of the legacy tutorials is an JOGL port, which is a great place to get started!
