This is a pro version of the free script I made, File Monster Lite but with about 4 times the amount of code. This has a LOT more features and there's also more automated things happening under the hood.

After trying to sort through lots of 3d files and figure out which ones I could import & what they looked like I got really frustrated, so I made a tool to make things easier. Whether you're perusing downloaded 3d files, organizing your 3d print files in non-native formats, going through old files or looking at models/animations files which you outsourced, this is a great little viewer that filters only shows files that you can import or open in Maya.
2017 update: Removed DXF & IGS/IGES file formats as Maya 2017/2018 no longer supports those through direct-connect.

  • Browse 3d files supported by Maya: .ma .mb .obj .fbx .dae(Collada) .abc(Alembic) .stl .stp .step .dwg
  • R-click model options to import, reference or delete.
  • Show files in subfolders. You can select how many levels deep to go.
  • Sort by name, size or date
  • Browse folders with option to hide.
  • Shows up to 7 mini icons per file which let you jump from icon to icon.
  • Batch file (all or selected) icons or quick render individually. Includes subfolders.
  • Auto-move your icons. Propagates all your icons if you change or move your icon directory.
  • Custom set where your icons are saved.
  • R-click icon options: delete or open dir.
  • JPG and/or PNG icons
  • Flexible naming: Reads any JPG or PNG icons with the same name as file plus up to 3 characters after. ie - Franky_01.png, FrankyABC.jpg. Prints 'recommend name change' were icons were found but not used. ie - Franky_OldVersion_55.png
  • Auto number icons to '_99'. Puts the first 7 icons it finds in the mini-icons.
  • Icons auto fit proportionally into the view size you set.
  • Icons are auto-named during creation and will also auto-named if auto-moved... lots of 'auto'.
  • Compatible with Maya 2010-2014. Not compatible with Maya 2009 or ealier.
  • Mac & PC compatible. Should work on Linux but not tested.
  • Low price.
  • Fully supported - I fix bugs.
