Shell Extension accessing rhinocommon or opennurbs

I poked a stick at writing a shell extension to thumbnail STL files, color based on how big the file is. green = light - red = heavy with yellow and orange between.

the coding was surprisingly easy to do. Id liek to be able to hook into rhino to display STL, OBJ etc etc to thumbnail all files rhino can handle. Not anticipating major issues with this, but, id also like to use some implementation of opennurbsto do the same for rhinofiles (nurbs) on machines without rhino…

is that possible?


Hi @ChristopherBotha,

Rhino’s thumbnail shell extension can actually be installed on systems without Rhino. (833.5 KB)
