Description Bastián Díaz 2016-11-03 05:44:17 UTC
Trying to create a new presentation with a 3D model, I noticed that open dialog (insert|object|3D Model), don't shows *.gltf files and also to insert *.dae files or *.kmz files, only is displayed an image with a question mark.

The only detailed information is in this blog:

According to the blog, this behavior can be caused by not having support for OpenGL 3.0, however, try on different computers 3D model not seem to have been inserted. In reviewing the document structure with an archive manager in the "models" folder is only a JSON and PNG file, which makes me think that the conversion of collada2gltf is not working.
In addition, it is possible to properly view 3D models created with earlier versions of LO (4.3.x).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Impress
2. Insert a 3D model (insert|object|3D Model)
3. Select a collada file (reference:

* Alternatively, you can try opening test files that include the model of the "duck" or "monster".

Actual Results:  
When you insert a 3D model (*.dae or *.kmz), only one image is displayed with a question mark

Expected Results:
You can successfully insert a 3D model with the currently supported formats.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I tried many different files from web pages like:

Facing the same problem Converted a file to both Collada and Json format using an online converter. This one -> 

The converted files when Inserted in Impress shows only a Question Mark in a box.
