I want a multi-3d-format-file browser.
I’m looking for a program that has the following features:
- Similar to ACDSee or Irfan View which allows browsing files with 3D geometry or files produced by Blender
- Very easy to use (this it is very important)
- It would be nice if such program was portable, but it is not necessary.
- No trial version.
What I found so far
- 3D-No Plugins, IIUIC it is for online browsing or for being a interactive tool on website (like flash or java programs)
- Octaga, Web 3D viewer of VRML, which is not what I need
- MeshLab, portable open source program for editing and viewing 3d files
- 3D Exploration, shareware
- some other 3d viewers
- GeeXLab can also be used to view models
Hard to answer precisely without having more details about about the 3d formats you intend to use (Blender can export in a variety of formats). Because of the total absence of standards for 3d file formats, this is a big deal, as no software will handle all the hundreds of possible formats.
Also could you be more specific about what you want to do: drag-and-drop files to the main window, rotating objects independently, etc.
That said, if you limit yourself to a specific file format, whatever it is, you can use a pipeline to convert to a “quite standard” file format (to me .ply, .stl. or .wrl), and then import the converted files to a software used as a viewer. Easy-to-use is quite relative when it comes to 3d, so the better is to try, my pick was meshlab, but it has a lot more functions than just browsing and it can be confusing.
Converting to VRML and viewing in an internet browser may be a possibility as well.
Well, that was a vague answer indeed. But I think there is no ultimate tool for what you want. I personnally use at least 10 different software for my 3d data (coming from different sources).
F3D can open many 3D file formats, including glTF, stl, obj, vtk.
F3D is a free, opensource VTK based software.
