Sometimes my .obj and .wrl files would load, and sometimes they would not. Therefore, to always get my 3d files to load (with their respective texture), I did the following to yield successful results:

.obj load correctly if they come from Google Sketchup (and not Solidworks directly)

1. Thus, save ACIS (.sat) in Solidworks
2. Next, download draftsight
3. In DraftSight’s command line type: “IMPORTSAT” and press <ENTER>. Locate the ACIS file you saved at step #1 and import it in DraftSight.
4. Save this file again in DWG format.
5. Open SketchUp
6. Import the DWG file you saved at STEP #4.
7. Save sketchup model as .dae
8. import into vizard using:

Hopefully this will be helpful to others who do not have Blender.
