# VRML 2 export not visible

I am using Blender 2.7.8 on MacOS 10.12.3.

According to the wiki blender can export VRML2. And that's what I want to do.

I created an empty Blender file, imported an STL, applied a material and searched for the VRML2 entry in the "File -> Export" menu:

As you can see it's not there. But the (as far as I understand) responsible scripts are existing (location: /Applications/blender.app/Contents/Resources/2.78/scripts/addons/io_scene_vrml2).

Can you please tell me why the export vrml option is missing?

• Activate it in the user preferences (addon tab, then look at 'import export' category : it is near the end of the list) – lemon Feb 20 '17 at 11:04

I couldn't find a way to export .obj to .wrl in Blender 2.8. The only option in Blender is to export the .obj to .x3d and then use a script to convert the .x3d to .wrl. Though there is another way - not using Blender for that task. Instead you can use view3dscene. It is a viewer for many 3D models and it works like a charm!
