I've been building some small circuit boards and wanted to send a 3D model so I exported as test.wrl but when I tried to open it in Windows 10 with the built in 3D Builder from Windows:
1. Set the Files Units to Meters, I changed to milimeters
2. Informed me that: One or more objects are invalidly defined.
I click to repair and after awhile the 3D drawing is displayed, I save it as test.3mf, 69,632 bytes, the test.wrl was 4,362,240 bytes

I was able to open your file in 3D Builder in Windows 10 and I didn't receive an error message. I changed the units to mm and it seemed to be OK:

I opened it by double clicking on the file testw.wrl after extracting it from the zip file.

I just tried again:

Windows 10 Pro Version 1607 Build 1439.351

The above is set to mm.
I just realized you hadn't clicked on Import yet, after importing the RED base goes away, my error happens on import. After playing with an image to make it look like your post I found selecting Inches gave me the checkerboard like your image, before clicking on the check mark to Import Model.

Yes. It appears I left out a step. I've never used 3D Builder previous to this.

I imported it again and clicked on import and got the same results you did. I then clicked on the notification that states "Click here to repair." It churned for quite a while and then created something it was apparently happy with.

I don't know what your ultimate use of the file is but I then saved it as a .obj file from 3D Builder and opened it in Cura which creates gcode for 3D printing. I didn't try to 3D print it.

The original .wrl file also imported into SolidWorks without throwing an error.

If you can use STEP files they are a typically a much better solution than .wrl files.

I've had nothing but issues with wrl files, this post was about MS 3D builder and it's inability to deal with wrl from DT. The vendor of the terminal block sent me some STEP files of their parts, work better than the terminal block I found from JST. OSTTE020104 is that part, there are many On Shore connectors in the DT library but none have 3D models since the vendor has up to now never provided them:
Kevin,
Thank you for your request and interest in our products.
Please find attached the model above and let us know how it works out for you.
Let us know if you have any other questions or requirements.
We have copied our local rep for additional service and support.
We are in the process of building our library of models. We have a few of the pole counts that we can share with you now. Hope this helps somewhat.
Please let us know

FYI: Digikey has these terminal blocks at $0.36 @10 ED2740-ND
