With a simple shortcode you can enable and embed a WebGL viewer to show 3d stl files.
In the current version:
- STL files have to be uploaded to /wp-content/uploads
- The viewer can’t be used more than one time per page. This might be a feature because the viewer needs a lot of resources.

Only one but:
but it would be nice if Settings, Rendering Options and Lightning Option would be explained
... but needs some config.
1. Enable .stl file upload (or any other file type or file-extension)
You have to disable FILTER upload before be able to upload an .STL file. Just add
// -- allow all files to be uploaded
somewhere in your config.php file.
2. Refer your .STL files correctly
Then make sure you refer your .STL files correctly!
If your domain is:
Your uploads will go to maybe:
So refer the stl file as:
because http://www.yourdomain.com/uploads/ is added by the plugin itself.
Insert code is not documented within the plugin, which is a shame. So here it is:
[stl file="/2015/10/3dprinted-wrench.stl" /]
Hope that helps.
4. Setup Background
I was not able to set the background, which seems to be just a black color by default.
There is a way within the plugin to setup a tile (image) but it did not work correctly. (Just a small stripe is shown.)
I'm using it here:
I did try:
[stl file="myfile.stl" background="#f8f8f8" /]
but does not seems to work for me.
If someone knows how to setup Background color (mono, fix), or tile image, please let me know!
