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Although WRL files were widely used in the past, they have largely been replaced by more modern 3D file formats like OBJ (Wavefront Object) or glTF (GL Transmission Format).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.

When converting 3D Model/Mesh files using our WRL converter we will attempt to convert color materials into a suitable format for use in the converted file.
|Full Name||Extensible 3D Graphics|
|Opens With||Blender, MeshLab|
X3D (Extensible 3D) is an XML-based file format designed for representing and storing three-dimensional (3D) computer graphics and multimedia content. It is an evolution of the VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) format, offering enhanced capabilities and extensibility. X3D files allow the creation of complex 3D scenes, models, and interactive environments that can be rendered and displayed in various applications, including web browsers with X3D plugins or dedicated 3D visualization software.
The X3D file format supports a wide range of 3D geometries, textures, lighting, animations, and interactions. It uses XML syntax, which makes it human-readable and easily parsed by computers. The extensible nature of X3D allows developers to define custom nodes and add new features, making it adaptable to evolving 3D graphics technologies and application requirements. Additionally, X3D files can be compressed to reduce file size and support faster data transmission over networks, making them suitable for web-based 3D applications and virtual reality experiences.
One of the key advantages of X3D is its platform-independence and interoperability. X3D files can be used across different operating systems and devices without the need for platform-specific modifications. They enable content creators and developers to share 3D assets seamlessly and ensure consistent rendering across various platforms. As a result, X3D has become a popular choice for applications involving 3D visualization, virtual reality simulations, computer-aided design (CAD), educational content, and other multimedia experiences that require dynamic and interactive 3D content.
X3D Converter Capabilities
When converting your WRL to X3D our tool will attempt to accurately convert any color/material information.
Your WRL file will be converted to a X3D file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our WRL 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. As both WRL and X3D support color material information our tool will also attempt to convert the color information too.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your WRL file to upload. Your WRL file will be uploaded to our servers. When the WRL to X3D conversion has completed, you can download your X3D file straight away.
We aim to process all WRL to X3D conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.
We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.
