3D Preview in your browser on Thingiverse!
Tony Buser’s Thingiview.js is an in-browser 3D file viewer powered by WebGL. If you have a WebGL-enabled browser, you can view 3D files in your browser almost as fast as viewing them with a desktop application.
Now, Thingiview.js is available on Thingiverse! Just look for the little cube icon next to the thumbnails for any STL file. For example:
As a bonus, and as shown above, you can embed Thingiviews into your own pages! Each Thingiview page has an “Embed This Thing” button, which gives you the HTML to copy-and-paste into your site. You can even customize the colors!
The ability to preview 3D files in-browser has been on our wishlist for a while so it is great to be able to get this feature into the hands of the citizens of Thingiverse!
Please keep in mind that Thingiview is an experimental feature. If you run into any files that don’t work, please let us know!
