WRL

WRL is an extension of the VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) format, which enables browser plugins to display virtual reality environments.

The WRL file contains data about the coordinates of the initial viewpoints, vertices and faces, as well as surface colors, transparency, textures, etc.

The WRL format is saved in ASCII text format and can be opened with various CAD programs such as Parallel Graphics Cortona3D Viewer and IMSI Design TurboCAD.

PTC Creo

PTC Creo by Parametric Technology Corporation, known as Pro/Engineer is a 3D CAD, CAM, CAE, and associative solid modeling application. It provides solid modeling, assembly modeling, 2D orthographic views, FEA, direct and parametric modeling, sub-divisional and NURBS surface modeling, and tools for mechanical designers. Its users are mostly mechanical engineers, designers and manufacturers. The app runs on Microsoft Windows.

The application is based on the parametric modeling approach, which means that it uses parameters, dimensions, features, and relationships to enable design automation and optimization of design and product development processes. Companies with family-based or platform-driven product strategy make use of this approach for what they need to perform successful design processes is a prescriptive design strategy.

The capabilities of the product can be split into three main groups, that is Engineering design, Analysis and Manufacturing. Product design processes include the ability to generate geometry of other integrated design disciplines such as industrial and standard pipe work and complete wiring definitions. Creo has numerous analysis tools which help with the development of the product which include human factors, manufacturing tolerance, mould flow and design optimization. As for manufacturing, the app has tooling options for molding, die-casting and progressive tooling design.

PTC Creo file extensions are .prt and .asm.
