Figure 12.3 Temple Of Inlined Arches

Inline nodes can load other VRML/X3D scenes into the current scene, helping authors reuse models to build larger worlds.

An Inline node creates a special group from another scene's contents. Children nodes are read from the file selected by a URL, and every child node loaded from the group is displayed.

These X3D scenes are adapted directly from the original VRML 2.0 Sourcebook chapter examples. Also available: Introduction to VRML97 SIGGRAPH98 course notes.
