View 3 D app

Last year Microsoft released a Paint 3D for Windows 10 users on PC, tablets and Mobile. The Paint 3D App was an update to the Microsoft’s Classic Paint App with 3D features. Now with the Windows 10 Creators update, Microsoft has improved the support for users who create with 3D on Windows PC. Now with the latest insider Preview Builds the company has now installed the 3D app as a default app in the app list. With the new View 3D app users can use simple controls to see 3MF, PLY, OBJ, FBX, and STL files from all angles.

This app primarily allows you to view 3D models, meaning you can’t use it to create anything new. Despite its limitations, it’s a useful companion app that you can use to show off your creations or examine the creations of others. If you created a model in the Paint 3D app for Windows 10, you can access and view it in the View 3D app. Suppose you save FBX files -3D models created in Paint 3D in OneDrive in order to access them on your phone you need to follow the steps below
