Elektriktrick STL and GCode Quicklook for OS X — Website (http://www.elektriktrick.com/sw_quicklook.html)

I’ve got this working on Osx 10.9.5 Had to remove Pleasant3D & Cura…..Will not work with either installed

Basic’s of Installing more at web site

QuickLook is a built in file viewer for Mac:
Hit the space bar with any file selected, and a preview of that file will be shown instantly.
QuickLook also builds Icon previews.

Unzip the .zip file and move the resulting ElektriktrickQuickLook.qlgenerator into /Library/QuickLook
Simply drag the left file onto the right folder. You need to enter your password to do this.

If QuickLook does not work right away, go to the Terminal and run qlmanage -r and qlmanage -r cache or log out and log back in again. (Terminal is located in Application/Utilities/ Just copy and paste into Terminal & Hit return.

If it still does not work, and you see a white cup on a dark brown surface as a preview, a software named 'Pleasant3D' is installed somewhere on your computer (Autodesk360 installs it, for example).

If you want Elektriktrick to work, you need to delete Pleasant3D completely (even empty the trash). I will try to fix that in the next version.

If you see no preview, but the logo of some other app, you most likely have some program that incorporates Pleasant3D, usually "Cura". For now, the only way I found to make Elektriktrick work, is to remove Cure from the Harddisk, including the Trash.
