Use our free and fast online tool to convert your WRL (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) 3D model file into a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image file ready to download. Once the model has been loaded you will be presented with a real-time 3D rendering of the model which you will be able to rotate, zoom and pan into the perfect position prior to capturing a screenshot for download.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your WRL to PNG.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your WRL file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the WRL to PNG conversion has completed, you can download your PNG file straight away.
We aim to process all WRL to PNG conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the WRL file you submit to us. The resulting PNG file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our WRL to PNG tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our WRL conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.

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 It was later superseded by the X3D file format which shares most of the functionality of WRL files.
If your WRL file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.
PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.
