Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118701] New: Incorporate U3D Compatability
Date Wed, 28 Dec 2011 23:25:01 GMT

             Bug #: 118701
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Incorporate U3D Compatability
    Classification: Extensions
           Product: extensions
           Version: version58
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: pdfimport

U3D is a free viewer of 3D Objects which can be embedded in .PDF and other
files.  It allows the content creator to insert a model - for instance, a
computer-generated car - in the document, and then the end user can look at
that model.  This is detailed at the Wikipedia page:

Ideally, an OpenOffice user would be allowed to simply insert a .U3D file into
a .ODT file just the same as he does a photograph or other external object. 
This could then be saved as a .PDF (or just kept as a .ODT) and sent to others. 

This feature has tremendous practical uses, such as allowing product developers
to inspect conceptual versions of CG models, but it's also just very cool.  If
somebody were writing a science fiction story with a spaceship, a 3D file could
be included in this story rather than just a 2D image.

Here is a thread I started on this topic at the OpenOffice forums:

Thank you for everything.
