vrml viewer for windows.
« on: January 16, 2018, 05:23:28 am »
any one can recommend a free *.wrl viewer for windows? no source is required I'm looking for a no install single exe viewer mostly to avoid polluting my system with installation of a single utility that will be used very infrequently (once a year is the biggest frequency expected). As far as I can see castle engine has a 3dviewer that might support vrml but no executable release and I would rather avoid compiling it my self at this point. A sample *.Wrl file can be found at http://members.chello.nl/o.veenstra3/vrml/yacs/curta_1_dec.wrl

View3dScene, can be executed without install, just extract in a folder and run the .exe
It only installs some small files with earlier opened files i nit, but that's like 90-95% of all Windows programs i think...

If you do not want that (history of opened files) you can rebuild it so it does not check for that.

thank you, I missed the sourceforge site, I found the github first (there are no binary files on https://github.com/castle-engine/view3dscene/releases) and I did not search any farther.
