Would/could UM commission a STL, OBJ viewer for use in windows browsers?

Recommended Posts

It would be very helpful to be able to see previews of the model files as I filter them through windows explorer. Is there already a Windows plug in for this? If so I haven't been able to find it. I'm sure the other OS's would appreciate something of this nature as well if it doesn't already exist. This could be bundled in with Cura for some added value. Might be good for cross marketing to non-UM 3Ders too. I don't think they have anything for this either.

This explains how to (in french) and i guess for windows only


Install this software: http://www.pragmaticdesigns.com/K-Studio-Demo_x64_1.2.4.0.zip

No need to run it, just use it for the preview

Ps: Windows 10 3d builder doesn't display Stl Previews (to bad it would be so nice to have a use for that software :p)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
