Preview thumbnail icons for STL files
May 31, 2019 02:18PM
I have a problem with remembering correct file names, so I wrote me a STL thumbnail handler. It integrates seamlessly with Windows Explorer and displays the content of any STL file right in the icon. No need to search through files for a specific model any more, it’s all directly in the icon smiling smiley

Hopefully it’s as useful to you as it is to me!

Great job! If only the same existed for OpenSCAD files (.scad). Got hundreds of projects and all with the same yellow icon eye rolling smiley
I'm generating thumbnails and html indexes of the folders now but that's way less elegant.

Thank you very much for this treasure!!

It works too with Freecommander (freware that works similar to totalcommander).

I will talk about it on SpainLabs.com (spanish community about 3D printing)

Its not that I have a problem remembering, cannot visualize the model. Ok So it just so happens to be both, besides this makes it so quick to find what you are looking for.

Do you have Windows 10? Because it is said on download page that W10 has a bug he can do nothing about it.

I have W8.1 64 bits and it works.

And the Image above shows me that it does work.

Lepes,

glad to hear you like my pet tool smiling smiley Thanks a lot for spreading the word and for the hint with FreeCommander, I’ll put that into the description!


Roberts_Clif,

IIRC, we met earlier on 3D Printing Forum when I presented my viewer. Very cool seeing you still use my software after “so many” years smiling smiley


As always, don’t hesitate to contact me should any problems occur.

You are most welcome, since installing Papas Best STL Thumbnails.msi can not believe how much easier it has been to find models needed for that special project.
Before it took me as long to find that special modified model as it did too print the Model, Ok I Exaggerated the time a little bit.

Thank you!!!
