"View3DScene is a browser for VRML (1.0 and 2.0) and X3D, and a viewer for other 3D model formats (3DS, MD3, Wavefront OBJ, and Collada are handled). A built-in ray-tracer allows the generation of images with more effects (like shadows and mirrors) and conforming precisely to the VRML 97 lighting specification. The program can also convert files from 3DS, MD3, and other formats to VRML and pretty-print VRML files. Linux, Windows and Mac OS X versions are available."
"FreeWRL is an open-source(R) VRML and X3D browser written primarily for the Linux (Unix) and OS X platforms. FreeWRL runs on both 32 and 64 bit Linux platforms. FreeWRL has been released as a Universal Binary for the OS X platform - it can run natively on both Intel and G4 Apple computers. FreeWRL can be run standalone, or within browsers (platform dependent for now). FreeWRL can also be accessed via the EAI interface to enable control of visual content via an external programming interface. FreeWRL supports script nodes, and shortly will support the X3D SAI programming interface."
