3d viewer

Microsoft sees the Hololens very much as a productivity device rather than just for playing games.

Their latest first party app for the headset in the Windows Store is 3D viewer, an app which lets you open Autodesk .fbx  3D models on your headset, either from OneDrive, directly from the internet via the Edge browser, or via other apps.

The app lets you:

  • Move, resize, and rotate 3D models.
  • Position 3D models relative to surfaces in your room.
  • Play and pause animation (if present).
  • Use Cortana to capture mixed reality photo or video.

Lucky Hololens owners can find the app in the store here.
