I guess many people here already knows Deep Exploration, which is the de facto tool for viewing 3d models. I was wondering if there's a free alternative for Deep Exploration, if possible with SDK, because I would be willing to develop some format conversion plugins, and deep exploration seems to be too restricted, even the SDK is closed. If there's nothing, not even under development, could people here would be willing to help developing one?

Hello vicviper,

It's been quite a while since I don't work with DeepExploration... when you say a 'tool for viewing 3d models' do you mean something like an asset browser with a window to view an explore individual scenes and objects? (Like FastStone Image Viewer but for 3d scenes?)

I've been working in the SceneEngine project, an open sorce 3d library similar to FilmBox SDK or PolyTrans. This library has its own file format (like FilmBox's .fbx or PolyTran's .bdf) and plugins for 3dsmax and Maya that import/export to this format, and there are also file converters for 3ds, collada and fbx, although some are outdated.

There is also a wxWidgets application with an OpenGL viewport to visualize the scene and a tree control to traverse the different elements of the scene (hierarchical nodes, objects, modifiers, materials, textures, controllers, etc).

Lately I've been working on some other tools for the project, like Lua scripting and Texture Baking, but I think that a tool for viewing 3d models can be built with what is currently implemented in the project.

As soon as I get some time I will upload some screenshots here to give you an idea of the 3d model viewer for SceneEngine.
