Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model 3MF Files to WRL

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) model files to a standard WRL (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing.

To convert your 3MF file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a WRL file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the 3MF to WRL conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

FAQ

How can I convert my 3MF file to WRL?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your 3MF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the 3MF to WRL conversion has completed, you can download your WRL file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my 3MF to WRL?

We aim to process all 3MF to WRL conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.

How accurate is the 3MF to WRL conversion?

We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features being added every week.

Is it safe to convert my 3MF to WRL on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the 3MF file you submit to us. The resulting WRL file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert 3MF to WRL on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our 3MF to WRL tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

File format information for 3MF to WRL

Extension: 3MF

Full Name: 3D Manufacturing Format

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: application/vnd.ms-package.3dmanufacturing-3dmodel+xml

Format: Binary

Description

3MF files are a modern 3D file format designed specifically for use with 3D printable models (additive manufacturing). It was designed to be the successor to the popular legacy STL format (also a common format in 3D printing) to overcome the limitations of that format.

The format of 3MF files is XML based that are compressed with the standard Zip file compression resulting in small, easily transferable files. The format supports 3D meshes along with associated materials and textures all contained within the Zip file.

3MF Notes

If your 3MF file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Face and vertex colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures

Extension: WRL

Full Name: Virtual Reality Modeling Language

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: model/vrml x-world/x-vrml application/x-cc3d

Format: Text

Description

The WRL file format is a 3D based model format originally created in the 1990's which was aimed at website usage. The format is text based and contains 3D geometry data such as vertices, faces, simple shapes and material information and more.

This format when launched was hoped to become a standard 3D format, however due to the large file sizes it didn't see wide spread adoption although it is a supported format within some CAD software applications. It was later superseded by the X3D file format which shares most of the functionality of WRL files.

WRL Notes

WRL files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the WRL file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh material colors
  • Vertex colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures
