RE: stl reader for Copyright application

Dear Jonatan,

Materialise also offers the Magics communicator which can be used as a free
STL viewer.

The Communicator is a viewer for STL-files (and many more file formats)
which also allows to add measurements, markups and make a kind of
3D-slideshow. The most interesting part of the communicator is in fact the
communication part, when 2 communicators are connected via the internet,
everything will be simultaneously shown on both communicators.

When installing the Communicator, you'll have 30 days evaluation that gives
you access to all its main functions. After this evaluation period, the
Communicator will become a free STL and MGX-viewer. (MGX is a Materialise
format that compresses STL-files 10 to 20 times)

You can find it at:

Kind regards,

Subject: stl reader for Copyright application


Can anyone recommend an stl file "reader" that I could include on a CD Rom
with an application to the Copyright Office? This would accompany some stl
files and was hoping someone could advise as to whether I would need some
specific software to avoid anything that might get me hung up with some kind

of inappropriate use problems.

A nice simple interface that would let someone roll the shape around would
be cool. Most of the work was sent through Materialise Magics...

Perhaps Bathsheba might be so kind as to offer some experience on this one?
Thanks list.
