Question VRML 2.0 driver of GEANT4

From: Maura E.M. <Maura E.M.>

I saved my model graphics to a .wrl file using VRML driver. It turns out that the generated .wrl file cannot be read by any tool I know capable of importing such a format.

MatLab Files Exchange contains several routines that read .wrl files. I tried three different functions but all failed in some respect. One of the functions generates a MatLab structure (like a C++ structure) when importing the .wrl file. The structure contains the following fields: % i/p filename name of vrml file % o/p nel number of geometry parts (elements) in file % o/p w3d geometry structure ;- % w3d.pts array of x y z values for each element % w3d.knx array of connection nodes for each element % w3d.color color of each element % w3d.polynum number of polygons for each element % w3d.trans transparency of each element

After importing my .wrl file the generated structure w3d only contains the filename.

w3d = 
    name: 'patch1'
infoline =
# Generated by VRML 2.0 driver of GEANT4

I would appreciate any suggestion about a tool capable of correctly loading the .wrl file generated by GEANT4. I am assuming GEANT4 VRML driver works and is updated ..... Is it ???

Thank you Best regards, Mauede
