Correct. I use Silo, which is why I mentioned an .obj version of the wrl 
data by Poseray. Silo does not accept wrl data.

In the meantime, I have done a mesh2 version of the wrl data through 
Poseray and that works fine. I had forgotten about the possible trouble 
of infinite objects when using photons, so I shall use the mesh2 
exclusively with them. Thanks for the reminder indeed.
