This month’s Moodle plugin is Wavefront Renderer 3D viewer…
The Wavefront Renderer plugin is a Moodle activity that allows learners to upload and view 3D models in a gallery, as well as viewing individual models in augmented reality on supported devices. Supports Wavefront .OBJ format models, together with .MTL material textures.
This resource allows course creators to add a gallery of 3D models to a Moodle course. As a course teacher, you are able to create, edit and delete model views. Students can view the models together in the gallery or open individual models in augmented reality. There is also the option to allow students to add comments to the gallery.
Some sample models are provided which is helpful.
Obviously this plugin has a fairly specific target audience in that the teacher must understand this technology, and be familiar with Wavefront .OBJ format models.
