Hi!, Naser1363 and Metadeth.


You said you managed to represent a 3D model into LabView using the 3D Picture Control loading a VRML file, don't you? I tried to do exactly that several months ago but I finally gave it up, because I couldn't get the view of the 3D model from a VRML file. I posted a message in another topic where I commented one of the problems I noticed this VI had: "Load VRML" didn't seem to recognize decimal units of the values of geometric and property parameters of the VRML file. You can see this message here:


I've recently upgraded to LabView 8.6, and I supossed this problem would be fixed, but it still remains. At least, I tried to do the same, but it also doesn't work now.


Could you help me? How did you do that?


Thanks in advance

Hi Dear Francisco


I don't understand your problem.please tell me again.But I want to tell you how do you make your VRML file?For example if you make it with Solidworks you must save your file with VRML97 not VRML1.Because I know Labview 8.2 an 7.1 dose not support VRML1.I don't have a Labview 8.6.

please tell me your problem again if I can I will help you.


Best regards

Hi, Naser.


Thank you for your fast reply. I know what you mean about VRML version. I obtain the VRML file through Solid Edge: I create a 3d model, and then I "save as" VRML file. I think the version is correct, because I can read the VRML file by the Notepad and in the first row appears "#VRML V2.0 utf8 Solid Edge VRML Export V1.2". That means that is the correct version (VRML97 is the same than VRML 2.0).


I think it is better to send you a file so you can check if it works or not. I send you the following: LabView program


Block Diagram.jpg: snapshot where you can see how the program looks like


Solid Edge model.jpg: snapshot of Solid Edge software and the model I created


eslabon.wrl: VRML file created by Solid Edge from the model


Control Panel running.jpg: snapshot of the Control Panel while it is running; there is nothing in the 3D Picture Control


When you get the files, you only have to open "", select the file "eslabon.wrl" and run the program.


I hope you can help me.


Thanks again.

Hi Dear Francisco


I don't have a Labview program now.But I can open our WRL file with  V-Realm Builder software.

I understand your VRML file is not VRML97.

I think it is reason for your error.

Please save your file again with VRML97.

IF you cant save it with VRML97 please send your Solid Edge model then I will save it to VRML97.

Please save your Solid Edge model with a good Suffix to i can open it with Solidworks.

I think if you save it with (.igs ) I will can to open it inSolidwork


Best regards

Hi, Naser, again.


Well, actually I have also Solidworks. So, in Solidworks, I load the model created by Solid Edge, then I save it like VRML file (selecting VRML97 option) and it also doesn't work in LabView with the "Load VRML", but now it shows an error: "This scene is missing expected nodes or contains nodes that LabVIEW does not support.".


So, I send you the following:


eslabon.par: model in Solid Edge

eslabon.SLDPRT: model in Solidworks

eslabon SW.wrl: VRML file I get through Solidworks


Thank you very much. And don't worry, I'll wait what is needed to solve that.
