What is wrl file?
Files with wrl file extension can be primarily found as 3D content based on the VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) that is used for representing 3-dimensional (3D) interactive vector graphics, designed particularly with the World Wide Web in mind.
wrl file description
File extension wrl is associated with VRML (Virtual Reality Modelling Language), a standard file format for representing 3-dimensional (3D) interactive vector graphics, designed particularly with the World Wide Web in mind.
VRML is a text file format where, e.g., vertices and edges for a 3D polygon can be specified along with the surface color, image-mapped textures, shininess, transparency, and so on. URLs can be associated with graphical components so that a web browser might fetch a web-page or a new VRML file from the Internet when the user clicks on the specific graphical component.
VRML files are commonly called "worlds" and have the .wrl extension (for example island.wrl). Although VRML worlds use a text format they may often be compressed using gzip so that they transfer over the internet more quickly. Many 3D modeling programs can save objects and scenes in VRML format.
Although VRML worlds use a text format, they may often be compressed using gzip so that they transfer over the internet more quickly (some gzip compressed files use the wrz file extension).
