What is FreeX3D?

FreeX3D is an Android model viewer and manipulator for VRML, X3D and STL models. It is based on the FreeWRL rendering engine, of which one estimate pegs at over a million downloads. FreeX3D adds STL capabilities, and will add image manipulation and DXF interpretation on top of this engine.

Security: This app does not track, does not have adds, does not time out. It reads and writes to the "sdcard" directory. It will act as an "intent receiver" if another app wants to ask for a STL/VRML/X3D display. It will, on user input, start the browser to display these FreeX3D web pages, and currently has an "email developer" button should you wish direct contact with the developers.
