Internet becomes very common tool for communication and data sharing. Virtual reality(VR) on web browser, and virtual prototyping and virtual manufacturing is widely used in many engineering folds. The reduction of overall development process and error minimization during data conversion becomes very crucial where sharing data via Internet and VR. This paper deals with the advantage and disadvantage of VRML format used in RP(Rapid Prototyping), and a software for RP data preparation is developed. If VRML format as an international standard for VR, is replaced with STL format, the weak points of STL format can be overcome and the technique related to virtual prototyping and virtual manufacturing can be addressed more systematically by sharing the data. The system developed in this work shows a good window to get access to a more realistic observation of an object fur an RP system from a long remote sites in a more systematic way.
