Subject: [Commons-l] 3D files on Commons

We shared this news on the Commons village pump, but wanted to make sure we caught folks who maybe don't read the discussions there. [0] 

In 2015 one of the most popular ideas for the Community Wishlist Survey was about supporting the uploading of 3D models on Commons. [1] [2] The Multimedia team at the foundation is writing new software to make this happen with the STL file format. [3]

You can see how this feature works on the beta cluster for Commons. [4] [5] [6] [7]

Note: Thumbnails might take a bit longer to generate on the beta cluster, and general performance will be a little slower than Commons. The feature is still being worked on, so things will change!

Please take a moment to join the discussion on Commons if you haven't. Questions and feedback are welcome.
