Microsoft’s Windows 10 Creators update improved support for users who create with 3D on Windows 10 PCs, tablets and mobile devices. This was shown especially with the addition of the new “Paint 3D” app which is an update to Microsoft’s Classic Paint app with the addition of new 3D modelling features.
Microsoft also developed new “View 3D” app for Windows users to view and interact with 3D models.
“With the View 3D Preview, easily open and interact with 3D models on your PC.”Microsoft’s store description reads, ” Use simple controls to see your 3MF, PLY, OBJ, FBX, and STL files from all angles”
Now a new leak by the WalkingCat shows the app will also support superimposing 3D models in real life, and use the positioning sensors in your tablet to view these models from different angles, much like the HoloLens does, but without donning a headset.
The feature is likely to find a home particularly in education, a market Microsoft will be addressing at the EDU event, where this technology will likely also be demonstrated.
If you have the Creators Update you can download the current version of the app from the Windows Store from the Store link below.
