Could we get this rolling again? (2016)[edit]

Several of our friends in the museum and maker communities have 3D stuff. It would be both cool and educational to be able to share it here (and wherever stuff from Wikimedia Commons ends up). --Palnatoke (talk) 07:54, 17 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • It is sad how the wiki movement is falling behind on some tech avenues - mobile, and 3D. Seriously, what is so difficult about making MediaWiki software compatible with some 3D open content file format? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 14:16, 17 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Good idea to re-open this, I am also working with a number of small heritage institutions that are getting started with taking their first steps in the field of 3d photography, would be great if we could get them to make these photo's available through Commons as well. But of course, this then needs to be a possibility first.. Mtmlan84 (talk) 10:19, 15 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Work on this is already in progress. Take a look at the overview on Phabricator:
Unfortunately development could be faster and it serves only very basic features - yet. But however, it's in progress, and that's really nice.
