Content is king once you have a 3D printer. You need things to print, after all! But one of the main repositories for free printable 3D models, Thingiverse, has prepared a wonderful upgrade to their service: 3D viewing of models - before you print them!
- Solid or wireframe views
- Instant X, Y, Z or perspective view
- Smooth automatic rotation
- Near instant use by clicking a button on the item's image.
Sounds great, but is there a catch? Yes! Your browser must be WebGL-enabled. This means you must have a really recent version of Chrome, Firefox or Safari, and for heaven's sake, put away that old Internet Explorer version 6!
