This thread was immensely useful!

I ran into this problem for the first time tonight, and vaguely remembered seeing the images in this discussion.

Anyway, the inside-outside trick worked like a charm! It needs to be stickied somewhere.

Hello,

I am designing a 3D part to print in full color sandstone. The coloring is quite complicated so I do a surface mapping (UV mapping) of one of the faces. I then export as VMRL 97 (2.0). When I upload in a zip (with nothing but the .wrl and .jpg), the face is blank. If I read the .wrl in notepad, there is no mention of the image anywhere. Please advise.

Thanks.

I will try to get confirmation from my colleagues at work, but as far as I know Solidworks does not support texture export to VRML. Either re-texture your model in e.g. Blender or try to find the colladaexporter plugin that used to live on labs.solidworks.com
