Please implement support for STL files

Postby m.Th. » Fri Aug 11, 2017 10:00 am

STL is the facto standard in 3D object exchange and in 3D printing industry.

Please implement the support for these files.

Some code is to be found here:

Another piece of code:

https://github.com/cabbagecreek/Marlin3 ... /v0.9-beta

(it generates thumbnails from STL files and shows them in Windows Explorer).

Also perhaps is better to mention that:

1. We can provide the necessary STL files for initial testing:
Samples.zip

2. We can test the feature when it is ready.

3. People aren't interested in having a 3D movement engine, just a simple thumb viewer like this one:
