Current Version is 1.1.0.
QuickLook is a wonderful thing on Mac: just hit the space bar with any file selected, and a big preview of that file will be shown instantly. Unfortunately this will not work for STL files. Older QuickLook implementations will no longer work for Mavericks as OpenGL rendering is no longer possible due to sandboxing.
Elektriktrick STL QL uses standard graphics to get around that limitation, It works for QuickLook previews as well as for Icon previews.
Version 1.1.0 adds an application that previews files, just as QuickLook does. It also fixes some minor issues with the QL plugin that is now part of the app. Please remove previous installs of the QL plugin.
Download the zip file and uncompress it by double-clicking it. Then open the extracted disk image and move the Elektriktrick app into your Applications folder. Launch Elektriktrick from within the Applications folder once to make the contained QuickLook plugin known to macOS.
- Version 1.0.1 changes the camera position to a more common location
- Version 1.0.2 adds GCode rendering for files anding in .gcode and .bfb
- Version 1.0.3 fixes issues with Mavericks and makes installing easier by providing a simple app that is dragged into the /Applications folder
