A SCAD file, short for "Script-based Computer-Aided Design," is a type of plain text file used primarily in the field of 3D modeling and design. It is commonly associated with OpenSCAD, an open-source software tool used to create 3D models using constructive solid geometry (CSG). Unlike traditional CAD software that employs a graphical user interface for modeling, SCAD files are written in a scripting language. These files typically have a .scad extension and contain a series of commands and parameters that define the shapes, dimensions, and operations required to construct the 3D model.
Within a SCAD file, users can define basic geometric shapes such as cubes, spheres, cylinders, and more complex shapes by applying operations like union, difference, and intersection to combine or modify them. The use of a scripting language in SCAD files enables users to create parametric models, allowing them to easily modify dimensions and characteristics of the model by changing variables in the script. This flexibility makes SCAD files particularly useful for designing customizable objects and prototypes, where various iterations may be required to meet specific design requirements.
Once a SCAD file is created and the script is defined, it can be rendered by the OpenSCAD software, which interprets the script and generates a visual representation of the 3D model. Users can then preview the model, make further adjustments if needed, and export it to standard 3D file formats like STL (stereolithography) for 3D printing or rendering in other CAD software. SCAD files have gained popularity among the maker community and designers due to their simplicity, modifiability, and compatibility with 3D printing technologies, facilitating the rapid prototyping of complex objects.

A WRL file, also known as a Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) file, is a plain text file format used to represent 3D models and scenes for virtual reality applications. Developed in the mid-1990s, WRL files are utilized to describe the geometry, appearance, and interactions of objects within a virtual environment. These files contain a structured set of nodes that define various components, such as shapes, materials, transformations, and viewpoints, which collectively create a coherent 3D scene. WRL files were popular for web-based virtual reality experiences in the early days of the internet and played a crucial role in the development of interactive 3D content for online applications.
Each node in a WRL file represents a specific element of the 3D scene and includes attributes that define its characteristics. For instance, nodes can specify the shape of an object (e.g., cubes, spheres, or complex meshes), its position and orientation in the virtual space, its visual appearance through materials and textures, and even its behavior through animations or interactive features. The flexibility and extensibility of the VRML language allowed for the creation of diverse and immersive virtual reality experiences that could be accessed through compatible web browsers or specialized VRML viewers.
Although WRL files were widely used in the past, they have largely been replaced by more modern 3D file formats like OBJ (Wavefront Object) or glTF (GL Transmission Format). These newer formats offer better performance, compression, and support for advanced features, making them more suitable for contemporary virtual reality and 3D applications. Nonetheless, WRL files still hold historical significance as a pioneering standard that contributed to the early exploration and adoption of 3D content on the web and laid the groundwork for the evolution of virtual reality technologies.
