This is a simple STL file viewer.
We can choose an STL file and click on the display button, it will show the relevant 3D model.
Download link: stlViewer

Show model:


Installation: double click volume file stlViewer.dmg and drag the app icon to the Application folder, the whole installing process finished.
I didn’t pack QT and vtk libraries into the app so is smaller than 1 M.
Please make sure your computer has relevant libraries if you want to use this app.

We can run it directly without installing, the zip file is complete and independent.

The program gives me the following warning on a window when I run it on win7 system.

Warning: In C:UlabVTKVTK-7.1.0RenderingOpenGL2vtkOpenGLRenderWindow.cxx, line 647
vtkWin32OpenGLRenderWindow (0000000003FFF780): VTK is designed to work with OpenGL version 3.2 but it appears it has been given a context that does not support 3.2. VTK will run in a compatibility mode designed to work with earlier versions of OpenGL but some features may not work.

But it has not the issue on my another win10 system which is Desktop PC.
So it has a different performance with a different environment.
Additionally, stlViewer can’t be put under Chinese directory or it fails to open it.
