A visual interface has been developed to provide a means for users to visualize the steel structure represented by a CIMsteel Integration Standards Release 2 (CIS2) file. Using a web-accessible translator, objects in a user's CIS2 file are mapped to application-specific VRML nodes in an augmented VRML file which can be explored using freely available browsers. Salient features of the interface are described with examples. The interface has proved useful to both software application developers and end-users.
