On the Shapeways backend we take a bunch of formats and convert it
internally to X3D. We use Xj3D's filter chain to process the files. It
can currently take the following formats: x3d, vrml, COLLADA, stl,
obj. It then uses the transformation pipeline to normalize all files
down to a Interchange level profile so further tools don't need to
understand higher order concepts. Its 3D printing optimized so its
handling is mostly optimized around geometry.
