Would you find version control for 3D models useful? A new tool developed by Wil Chung allows users to view a 3D printable model, see what changed about the design over time. "See what changes you made and what your collaborators contributed. Make derivatives of objects and make your own custom changes." This project is called CubeHero, and it provides visual versioning, 3D models sharing and feature of click-to-order from Bill of Materials.

You can now try out Cubehero in a demo with a WebGL enabled browser.

Drag the model to rotate it. Then click on the blue 'History' button, and you'll see a history of commits on the right sidebar. Click on each of the commits to see what has changed between that commit and the commit before it. Soon, you'll be able to create your own repos and see diffs of you STL models.
