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

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.

I know MacOS does support a preview of an STL file natively,

just like an image press the spacebar to see the model and you can zoom and rotate.

I think Windows 10 is doing this already?

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

Basically:

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)

Glad to see you active on the forum again Daid.

Good to know that about Win10. I'm still on Win7, and not anxious to move forward. I will when I get pushed I guess.

Thanks Didier. I ran that msi, and it gave me exactly what I was looking for!
