I’m Chris – father (Papa in German) and enthusiastic software developer. This is where I upload my best tools, hence the name – Papa’s best!
My first upload is the STL Viewer I wrote for 3D printing. All the clicks and pauses with MeshLab & Co annoyed me, so my STL Viewer comes without bloat. Double-click, see the file, done!
This update allows to run Best STL Viewer on computers that are very weak or very old (missing Direct3D 11-compliant hardware and drivers). It will automatically fall back to software rendering, which is very slow – but it’s better than nothing! (Windows 7 is still a minimum requirement, though.) Some small problems have been fixed as well.
The STL Viewer now comes with a greatly improved setup (better updating, less UAC prompts, significantly smaller size) and a new option to use US/Imperial units (auto-detected on first launch). You can grab the update at the download page!
Ace Combat models updated
When I first released the extracted Ace Combat 3 plane models, my code contained a bug, causing various shading problems. It’s now fixed, and I improved the nose tips of the planes as well! Furthermore, I updated the model viewer – aside from a few dozen fixes, you can now copy snapshots to the clipboard via Ctrl + C.
Head over to my Ace Combat page to see new snapshots and download the updated package!
