Simple routine to read a VRML 1.0 file containing a 3D polygon model. Only reads the points and polygons info, and colors / transparency. Does not read textures or process transformations etc. Requires points to be defined as Coordinate3 nodes. The output is a structure containing the data ready for loading into MATLAB patches.
