Description David Brennan 2011-12-28 23:25:01 UTC
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.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
