View Full Version : SolidWorks in OpenGL?

07-21-2010, 01:54 PM
I'm currently working on a simulation in OpenGL and was just given a .wrl file (from SolidWorks) and told to make use of the SolidWorks models to make the simulation more realistic looking. However, after looking around, I haven't found anything about how to actually load the SolidWorks file in OpenGL. Does anyone know how I can do this?

.wrl sound like standard VRML, you should be able to find libs to load that.

Yeah, I assumed there was probably some library for it, but I've spent the past hour searching, and I can't find anything. Do you have any idea where I can find one?

Did you try http://openvrml.org/ ?
