Did your computer fail to open a WRL file? We explain what WRL files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your WRL files.

What is a WRL file?

Files with the .wrl extension are most commonly associated with the Virtual Reality Modeling language. These files contain virtual worlds that have been created with this language. The WRL files contain coordinates and colors defining the objects and shapes in the virtual world as well as viewpoint coordinates and 3D scene views. These files are saved in the ASCII text format. A variety of modeling applications save files with the .wrl file extension.

The .wrl file extension is also used for Netscape Live3D plug-in files and Cosmo Player world files.
