[X3D-Public] 10MM triangle VRML model

I have generated some large files for testing and have two suggestions on how to open a 10-million-triangle file:

  -  64-bit Windows 7, 4 GB physical memory, Mozilla Firefox, Cortona3D Viewer. Firefox has the ability to use up to 4 GB memory on 64-bit systems, and Cortona can load a 10-million file and the  FPS is quite good. (Internet Explorer can't handle more than 2 GB).

  -  64-bit Windows 7, 8 GB physical memory, 64-bit Internet Explorer, 64-bit Cortona3D Viewer. When using all 64-bit software, size limits are pushed very far away. I have successfully opened a 5-million file, on 10-million it began swapping, but I have 4 GB memory, so 8 GB should be sufficient.


By the way, it is recommended to have the number of individual shapes as small as possible. My test files contained a single shape.
