How to show STL thumbnails in Windows 10 for 3D Printing

The process for installing STL Thumb and generating thumbnails for STL files in Windows 10 is quite easy:

  1. Browse to unlimitedbacon's stl-thumb Github repository
  2. Click on the releases for STL Thumb
  3. Download the STL-Thumb-Setup_0.3.1.exe
  4. Open the file and run the installer
    • It may ask you if you're sure you want to run it, as it is unsigned and does not have a publisher listed.
    • It may be detected by your browser as an unwanted file (or malware). You can safely save the installer.
  5. Agree to the terms and click Install
  6. That was easy!
    • Your STL files will generate thumbnails with your Windows 10 color scheme.
