We are working hard on a 3D Viewer for Raspberry Pi : http://pi3dviewer.quickmvp.com/
For those who don’t know what is Raspberry Pi : The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It only costs $35. (http://www.raspberrypi.org/)
It will be great educational tool to get kids interested in STEM and engineering fields. Apart from that it will be a great tool for ‘maker’ community to view their design files right on Raspberry Pi.
We are currently planning to support following popular 3D file formats
- SketchUp (http://www.sketchup.com)
- STL (Used widely in 3D printing)
It will cost less than a burger ($5).
Let us know what you think and how it can offer you more value. If you want certain features to be added just let us know.
