Matthias Melcher introduces QuickLook of STL-files for Mac OSX

Thingiverse user matthiasm and 3Druck.com reader provide a QuickLook extension for Mac OSX Mavericks.

Who hasn’t come across the problem of having saved so many STL files in a folder, unable to allocate them. Apple offers a QuickLook solution for many data formats, however unfortunately not for STL files. Hence Matthias Melcher has programmed an extension, which is able to illustrate STL files as 3D models in the data folder itself. Pushing the space key takes you to a larger preview of the 3D object.

Our editorial team has already installed the software and is thrilled about it!

Electrictrick STL QL is available via Thingiverse.

3D models are also displayed as QuickLook in folders:


Thank you Matthias for your hint and the fantastic software!
