The VRML file format is a 3D based model format originally created in the 1990's which was aimed at website usage. The format is text based and contains 3D geometry data such as vertices, faces, simple shapes and material information and more.

This format when launched was hoped to become a standard 3D format, however due to the large file sizes it didn't see wide spread adoption although it is a supported format within some CAD software applications. It was later superseded by the X3D file format which shares most of the functionality of VRML files.

Our VRML 3D Model/Mesh tool does not support any color material data contained within VRML files so the converted file will not contain any color information.

The STL file format has its roots in the 1980's and is the native file format for 3D Systems stereolithography CAD software. The format defines a triangulated mesh with vertices and faces and is a popular format for sharing 3D printable model files.

There were several formats that attempted to extend the STL format namely SolidView and VisCAM whose formats included limited 15-bit color information for each mesh face which is often ignored by most modern 3D software. The STL format can be either Text or Binary, our tools will support both formats.

STL Converter Capabilities

Our 3D conversion tool does not support color/material information in STL files so your file will not contain any color information.

Information for converting from VRML to STL

Your VRML file will be converted to a STL file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our VRML 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. Our tool will not attempt to transfer any color information if present in your VRML file, your final 3D model will contain geometry data only.
