How can I create VRML pages?

What can I use to produce VRML, or can I write it like HTML?

It is possible to write VRML as a purely text-based language, using a regular word processor or text editor. But it is hard work, and it’s likely going to get harder as more features are incorporated into VRML.

If you want to follow this approach, a good source of information about writing your own VRML is “The VRML Sourcebook” by Ames, Nadeau and Moreland, available from John Wiley & Sons.

However, the easiest way to generate VRML is to use a world-builder package. The following list includes all that I found, although there will be more coming thick and fast as established 3D modeling and animation packages adapt themselves to import and export VRML files.
