Question / Request : Can rhino preview STEP and IGES files on the windows explorer preview windows just like .3dm files?

So, I get a lot of STEP and IGES files from the company olds times, and it would require a lot of effort to rename everything to make it easier to find, a hell lot.

I was wondering if there is a way for rhino to show the step/iges preview on windows explorer just like it does with 3dm files.

Hi -

No, there isn’t. Rhino saves a picture in the 3dm file and a plug-in makes it possible to view that image in Windows Explorer. STEP files don’t contain such image.
