xVRML (eXtensible Virtual Reality Modeling Language, usually pronounced ex-vermal) is a standard file format for representing 3-dimensional (3D) interactive computer graphics, designed particularly with the World Wide Web in mind.

Format[edit]

xVRML is a text-file format from the xVRML Project[1] at RIT. While xVRML evolved from VRML; it now has an easy-to-learn, XML-based syntax, for which it utilizes an XML Schema to insure both a clear structure and understandable constraints.

Downloads[edit]

The specifications, documentation, and example files, as well as information about a viewer application (Carina), may all be found at the xVRML Project website.[1] All but the examples may be downloaded from the Project SourceForge site.[2] An extensive and growing object library is available for public use through the xVRML Project site.[1]
