Learn how to convert WRL to GLB with CAD Exchanger
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.
Supporting data such as 3D scenes, models, lighting, materials, and geometry / animation are all stored in a single GLB file, eliminating the need for extra support files to access textures, geometry, shaders, animation, and other types of data required for a 3D view. GLB files are 30% smaller than glTF and its associated files, so they load and process faster.
GLB is compatible with various 3D visualization programs, such as Microsoft Paint 3D, Microsoft Remix 3D, Blender, Trimble 3D Warehouse, SketchUp.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
