# The purpose of this script is to automatically load wrl (VRML) files,
# saved out from Solidworks assemblies as individual part files, from a
# source folder.When finished loading save as .blend before continuing.
#
# Depending on the source of the VRML files, you may have some empty files,
# which results in a message from blender: "ERROR: Found no data"
# just keep your mouse moving and ignore this message :o)
