This paper describes how the web-based visualisation can be greatly improved using the function-based shape modelling technique. We propose the function-defined VRML shape node, which allows the content creators to describe any complex models with relatively small functions compared to the large-size polygonal mesh based VRML nodes. The design, the implementation details, and the application examples of the proposed node are discussed. The software is available for downloading from the project website.
