3D model support coming soon to Commons

Chris Koerner-2

Just a quick note to let you all know that support for 3D models is coming to Commons! [0] The plan is to have the feature enabled by the end of November. There are a few technical items left to address. The feature will support the STL file format, one of the most common file formats for 3D models. [1] You can see an example of how a 3D model will appear on the test wiki. [2] (.gif) [3]

This feature has been discussed in the Wikimedia community for a long time. Most recently the feature was #11 on the 2015 Community Tech Wishlist and was previously discussed on Commons in April as development progressed. [4] [5] There will be a blog post on the Wikimedia Blog once the feature is enabled.

You can read more about the technical details of the feature and the help documentation on MediaWiki.org. [6] [7]
