3D CAD models provide a natural way of sharing design information among designers. VR emerged to be a popular technology for human-computer interface in product design fields. VRML is a tool specifically designed for creating 3D virtual worlds on the Web where these synthetic worlds give us the ability to visualize objects. This paper describes the system for VRML model visualisation that enables changes in configuration file, written in XML, and automatically reviewing of the model including functional behaviour defined as sensors and scripts. The main benefit of using XML technology is in a hierarchical structure that is easier to search or rearrange and is very useful for application programming.

Keywords: VRML virtual environments, CAD systems, XML database
