I have some very exciting announcements this morning. Basically, thanks to generous support from LulzBot and one awesome MediaGoblin contributor Aeva Ntsc, we now have 3d model support in MediaGoblin! This awesome news means that MediaGoblin becomes more useful for 3d artists and is well on its way for those looking for a free software, customizable alternative to something like Thingiverse! (Goblinverse??)
I have plenty more to say, but demonstrations speak louder than words, so check out this video:
I think this news was exciting for everyone, but especially for me! When I give talks about MediaGoblin I frequently say “the media types layer is extensible, so you could even add support for something like 3d model support if you wanted to.” I didn’t expect us to get this so soon… I guess I’ll have to come up with a new line. I guess that’s the best kind of problem to have!
Code is not yet merged into master but you can check it out here if curious. We are hoping it should land in the next release.
Oh, and did I mention that we’re running this crowdfunding campaign? Every bit helps, and we’ve still got a ways to go! Contributions are currently being doubled… so your support is welcome. And tell a friend! The world’s most beautiful media publishing future is counting on *you*!
