A platform that allows the viewing and management of 3d printing related projects and assets


Many of us hoard a tone of STL’s from public sites, patreon and so forth. Keeping a tidy library easy to access and search proved difficult (at least for me).


The main goal is to achieve a self-hostable platform that work on top of the organization you already have, allowing you to have a nice overview of what you have collected so far.

Demo website


Home page with filter by project name and tags


Project Image galery


3DView allows you to view multiple models of the project at once with zoom and pan controls


Slice files with print details


Edit page


How to use

  • Download the latest release for your platform
  • Edit the config.toml
    • Change the library_path to the folder where you keep your stls
  • Run the binary files
  • Navigate to http://localhost:8000/projects on your browser
  • Since you don’t have initialized projects please toggle the initialized button and the projects should start to appear.
  • Enter the project
    • Go to edit and save the projects to initialize it.
  • Have fun.
  • When something blows up please contact me on discord 🙂


port = 8000 # port to run the server on
library_path = "/library" # path to the stl library
max_render_workers = 5 # max number of workers to render the 3d model images in parallel shouldn't exceed the number of cpu cores
file_blacklist = [".potato",".example"] # list of files to ignore when searching for stl and assets files in the library_path
model_render_color = "#167DF0" # color to render the 3d model
model_background_color =  "#FFFFFF" # color to render the 3d model background
