Learn how to convert WRL to OBJ 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.
OBJ is a geometry definition file format (.obj extension) first developed by Wavefront Technologies for its Advanced Visualizer animation package.
The OBJ file format is a simple data-format that represents 3D geometry alone — namely, the position of each vertex, the UV position of each texture coordinate vertex, vertex normals, and the faces that make each polygon defined as a list of vertices, and texture vertices.
Vertices are stored in a counter-clockwise order by default, making explicit declaration of face normals unnecessary. OBJ coordinates have no units, but OBJ files can contain scale information in a human readable comment line.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
From WRL to OBJ, CAD Exchanger gets you covered.
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
