Start the Program

When you start up mjbWorld you will see a screen like the one above (If you have not already installed and run the program click here)

You can either press one of the 3 buttons to setup the views, or you could close the layout view and insert the views that you need.

If you are new to the program a good choice would be to press the 'one view' button which would show the following views:

Loading a file

To open a VRML file click on the icon on the toolbar or click on File->Load or File->Import->wrl in the menu, this will bring up the file dialog,

first make sure the example files are loaded on your local disk. Or you can load files directly from the network by choosing 'LoadFromNetwork' under the File menu.

The type of file being read is implied by the file extension, as follows,

The filetypes that can be loaded are as follows:

file type extension read / import support write / export support
x3d (xml version of VRML) .x3d or .xml yes yes
VRML 2 .wrl yes yes
Wavefront .obj yes yes
Java3d Source .java no yes
C Source .c no yes

The filetype will depend only on the filename extension (ie the characers following the dot) that you use.
