Hi,

I'd like to export my LightWave model to the .wrl format.

Any suggestions?

(WHY???, you ask. Because it's one of the few 3D formats that places like Shapeways will accept to do multi-color prints)

Most of my models go to print out of Zbrush so I dont really have an issue but there are a lot of other 3D apps that export that format.
I have C4D and Bonzai 3D both export wrl.
I think Blender can export wrl. If you cant find anything let me know. I'll convert it for you if you want.
If you are printing in color I'm assuming that you are going to have your prints done on a Zcorp printer.
You may be better off finding a local print house as some companies I've had do Zcorp prints do not
allow the hardener to penitrate the print as deep because it takes time.
This will make the model very weak. If the company is local you can usually go visit and find out.
Sometimes it cost a couple of bucks more to go local but it means you get a bit of control.
Shapeways does have a great price really tough to beat that.

I highly recommend FreeCad. It handles pretty much everything. Looks like a nice little app., though I have not used it for anything but import and export.

I was actually approached today by a Kraftwurks user. Apparently they also use .wrl for color prints. I'd like to have one-click export from LightWave, with color.

No idea really, perhaps this might help..a free converter.
