Polygon model files (.ply) can be generated from many other 3D models, including files in VRML format (.wrl, .vrml etc.). This can be usually done with some 3D modeling tool or a dedicated conversion utilities. Some good picks are listed below.

3D Builder allows users to create models and print in 3D. It opens 3MF, STL, OBJ, PLY, and VRML and save as 3MF, PLY, or STL formats.
Convert from vrml file
to ply file
The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned vrml to ply. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.

MeshLab is an open source, portable, and extensible system for the processing and editing of unstructured 3D triangular meshes. The system is aimed to help the processing of the typical not-so-small unstructured models arising in 3D scanning, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this kind of meshes.
