    This serializer outputs a 'blobable' array of data from one or more JSCAD geometries. The array of data can either be used to create a Blob (new Blob(blobable)), or converted to a Node.js buffer.

    The serialization of the following geometries are possible.

    • serialization of 3D geometries (geom3) to X3D IndexedTriangleSet (a unique mesh containing coordinates)
    • serialization of 2D geometries (geom2) to X3D Polyline2D
    • serialization of 2D paths (path2) to X3D Polyline2D

    Material (color) is added to X3D shapes when found on the geometry.

    const rawData = x3dSerializer.serialize({unit: 'inch'}, geometry)
    //in browser (with browserify etc)
    const blob = new Blob(rawData)
