I need:

  • To be able view wavefront object files that are colored according to a wavefront material file.
  • The software to work on Linux and ideally be free.

I do not need:

  • To modify or manipulate the object
  • Save it to another format

Attempts so far:

  • Tried installing meshlab, but for some reason snap refuses to work. Maybe a Fedora 29 issue, unsure.
  • GLC Player doesn't seem to exist. I can't find how to get it on linux anywhere. Maybe it has to be built from source? If so, not sure where to get it.

Blender will do that pretty handily, and of course a whole lot more as well.


  • Could you also give an example how this is done in Blender? Jan 7 at 8:49
