wow... i mean, wow, someone's still doing anything with VRML? that's totally cool.
I like VRML because I wrote some software to build parametric models in VRML... parametric in that I change one parameter and all the rest of the components adapt to the change - not just the component who's dimension I change.
I use Visual Basic for programming, an MS Access database to store many of the parameters, and the program spits out VRML files, ready for viewing.
I really like VRML because you can walk around inside the models. Even take a turbolift ride. I've rigged the bridge to display many of the original displays and they change over time. There's lots of animation on my ship!
Ya - VRML is pretty cool.
