OK, they are not XML, they are ASCII.
Whatever, they are easy to parse.

"VRML is STL plus color information" was an infomation I got on Industrial Fair Hannover in 2011 at Hewlett Packard.
Seems to be a little too simplified.
I hate when you get stupid information because you are a woman.

You can definitely use VRML for HP 3D printers, and of course there are interfaces for many other 3D printer types.
Dropping pieces of information does not seem to be a problem, huh?

It's good to use standards.
