3D is a MediaWiki extension that adds support for viewing three-dimensional model files.

Currently, it supports the STL format, but it could be expanded to support other formats.

Uploading 3D objects[edit]

If this extension is installed on your wiki, the only step needed to use it is to upload an STL file to the wiki via the usual methods.

Once the file is there, the file page and any file links will use the new thumbnailer, and the media viewer extension will use the new client-side interactive viewer.
