T hanks for the feedback!

There is a problem with the export function as you said. For example,
Blender vrml/x3d importer seems to have a problem with inlined x3d
files inside vrml files. I think it would still be nice to use x3d
models from other sources than Wings3d just inside the 3d-viewer.

I think that it souldn't be too hard to patch the VRML exporter so that
it can take both, vrml and x3d files, as they are very similar in
structure and I already have all the model information extracted from
x3d file. Writing an x3d export function may also be quite simple if I
base it to existing vrml exporter. I will take a look at it.

I forgot to ask - are you using the X3D binary or ascii format?

I'm using ascii/XML format.
