The VRML Object Supermarket

This page offers a means of viewing and downloading all of the .WRL format objects stored at the UK VR-SIG 3D Object Archive. This format has been developed as an open, platform-independent file format for 3D graphics on the Internet. VRML stands for Virtual Reality Modeling Language. Click here for the Web3D Consortium Home Page and the VRML Repository.

In order to view these VRML objects, your Web browser must be configured with a suitable VRML browser. Click here for a selection of currently available VRML Browsers.

N.B. All VRML files have been compressed with the gzip utility.

VRML - Inventor converts

Most of these VRML files have been translated from original Open Inventor models using the ivToVRML utility from SGI.

VRML - WLD converts

The following VRML files have been translated from original REND386/AVRIL .WLD objects using the WLD2VRML utility written by Bernie Roehl (Click here to download the
WLD2VRML.ZIP archive).

VRML - VR-ART models

This section contains links to all of the VRML files which have been supplied to the site from the VR-Art archive at the Design Research Centre.

VRML - Buildings

This section contains a number of VRML models of buildings, both real and imaginary. Some of these are quite large models.

VRML - Vehicles

This section consists of VRML files for a number of different types of vehicle, e.g. cars, aircraft, spacecraft etc. Again, some of these models are quite large - particularly the spacecraft models. N.B. Many of these were converted from original .OFF format by the OFF2VRML converter from Jason Mathews.

VRML - Objects

This rather generally named section is for the rather general topic of inanimate objects. So far, this little umbrella term has been extended to cover things like: fruit, tools, crockery etc.

VRML - Scenes

This section is for any models of scenery or landscapes etc.

VRML - Shapes

This is a collection of simple (and some not quite so simple) geometric shapes and primitives.

VRML - Miscellaneous

This section contains a number of small VRML models which do not easily fit into any of the above classifications.
