open3mod is a free, Open Source 3D model viewer for Windows. It leverages assimp's import and export abilities and adds a modern, tabbed UI that makes it easy to quickly inspect models.

Developed as a separate project, open3mod has now (as of June 2014) replaced the old assimpview.

The Open Asset Import Library (short name: Assimp) is a portable Open-Source library to import various well-known 3D model formats in a uniform manner. The most recent version also knows how to export 3d files and is therefore suitable as a general-purpose 3D model converter. See the feature-list.

open3mod is a Windows-based model viewer. It loads all file formats that Assimp supports and is perfectly suited to quickly inspect 3d assets.


Assimp aims to provide a full asset conversion pipeline for use in game engines / realtime rendering systems of any kind, but it is not limited to this purpose. In the past, it has been used in a wide range of applications. 

Written in C++, it is available under a liberal BSD license. There is a C API as well as bindings to various other languages, including C#/.net, Python and D. Assimp loads all input model formats into one straightforward data structure for further processing. This feature set is augmented by various post processing tools, including frequently-needed operations such as computing normal and tangent vectors.

Features

Asset-Importer-Lib is ...

  • Written in portable, ISO-compliant C++ ( C++11 supported )
  • Easily configurable and customizable build chain via cmake
  • Core interface / API is provided for both C++ and C
  • Easy to configure Post-processing pipeline
  • Command-line interface to perform common operations (i.e. quick file stats, convert models, extract embedded textures) from the shell
  • Imports bones, vertex weights and animations (i.e. skinning, skeletal animations)
  • Loads multiple UV and vertex color channels (current limit is 8)
  • Works well with UNICODE input files
  • Supports complex multi-layer materials
  • Supports embedded textures, both compressed (e.g. PNG) or just raw color data
  • No external dependencies (zlib, zlib and irrxml are also needed, but they're included in the repository so you don't need to bother).
  • Due to its export interface, Assimp serves as general-purpose 3D model converter
  • (Just because of its name: Assimp renders your program sexier)
