I wonder if there is a way to Import VRML objects, e.g. here. The Export of These formats is provided but I did not found a way to Import it. Can anyone help here?

(The Goal is to build a model of one of the insects from foam. Therefore I Need cross section of the 3D model.)

    $\begingroup$ It doesn't seem as though VRML is listed under $ImportFormats, so it's certainly not officially supported $\endgroup$

MMA dose not use the .wrl file format. You can use a free program called Blender. This is the site to get your free copy of blender. Click here for Blender Once it is finished installing, Import your file into Blender, and then Export the file to .3ds, And finally Import the .3ds file into Mathematica. Piece of cake
