STL previewer?

Post by LePaul »

I have a ton of files and rather than open each and every one in Cura....is there a good (Windows) program for previewing the STL files, similar to what we can do for photos?

I'll check that out....I found another one that worked okay, all I had to do was go into Windows File Explorer, turn on the View to Large Icons and I could see the items!

This message board thread shows info on it

http://community.robo3d.com/index.php?t ... orer.7596/

The download link they list on the 3rd page is this

http://www.pragmaticdesigns.com/K-Studi ... .2.4.0.zip

I registered for a key to use the program...I didn't think to check if one was required or not for the previews to show!

Just to have the info logged here for the future.... people should check out Papas STL viewer. This app is small and light, and just does exactly what you expect. Open and show STLs
