Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce the release of a new 'Wavefront' 3D model viewer plugin. This allows teachers and students to upload .OBJ (Wavefront) 3D models to Moodle. Students can:

  • manipulate the model on screen
  • add comments

The plugin is available to download from the Moodle plugins Directory here: https://moodle.org/plugins/mod_wavefront

The plugin ships with two example models (a human skeleton and a Greek vase). Some teaching examples -

  • view and comment on models before they are 3D-printed
  • familiarisation with complex machinery
  • exploring anatomy
  • games development

... and I'm sure there are many others I haven't thought of.

Please feel free to let me know of any bugs/issues/improvements - preferably via the bug tracker here: https://github.com/iandavidwild/moodle-mod_wavefront/issues

Thanks,

Ian.
