STL Catalog Gallery Viewer Needed

Post by berryhillac » Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:57 pm

I've got several hundred STL files in a file structure with a few dozen folders. While the files are well named, I'd love to be able to use some sort of viewer to look at many of them at a time. Something like a gallery set up in photo viewer would be ideal. Does anyone have any advice on how I might be able to do that?

Thanks,
Andrew

One approach is to enable the preview icons. This method usualLy works https://www.thingiverse.com/groups/ctc- ... topic:9477

Thanks for the tip, but alas I do my work on a Mac and Finder can't preview STL files. Others types, but not those. On to plan B.
