Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model STEP Files to WRL

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or STEP (STEP-File) 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 STEP 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 STEP to WRL conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

FAQ

How can I convert my STEP file to WRL?

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

How long does it take to convert my STEP to WRL?

We aim to process all STEP 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 STEP 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 STEP to WRL on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the STEP 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 STEP to WRL on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our STEP 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 STEP to WRL

Extension: STEP

Full Name: STEP-File

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: application/octet-stream

Format: Binary

Description

The STEP file format is a 3D format defined in 1994 and used to store 3D objects for use in Computer-aided design (CAD) applications. STEP files are text-based formatted files containing one instance per line.

Although STEP files are widely supported by most CAD applications the format does have its limitations, such as the necessity to read the complete file into memory in order to parse the contents and due to the text storage of information the files can be quite large.

STEP Notes

STEP files when imported will be converted to 3D geometry comprising vertices and faces. If the STEP file contains color information this will be converted where possible.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh colors

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
