Image of Free STL Viewer for Mac: Mac OS X Preview

By now everyone will have heard about it: if you have a Mac computer running OS X El Capitan and higher, you can open 3D models using the Preview application. It has a built-in STL file viewer. The options are very basic, all you can do is zoom and rotate the object, but that is more than adequate for day-to-day displaying and reviewing purposes. Plus, if you expand the view to full-screen, the background switches to a dark shade to better highlight the model.
