Currently impress supports the glTF format for 3D models, but the largest amount of 3D models arent in this format, so it would be useful to support a wider range of 3D model formats. I stumbled on Assimp today which is a BSD-licensed C++ 3D import and export library that supports a wide range of formats and believe it maybe possible to integrate this into LO.

License looks ideal (3-clause BSD); would make a nice GSOC task - perhaps for next year; unless someone wants to take it on.

Wrt. rendering / viewing - I wonder what model format they generate from this - but at least the current location of this in avmedia makes some sense here I think - I'd love to have a better, and maintained 3D model render.

Thanks for the link =)

It would be very good for what can stand more formats for 3D models, as this functionality has much potential in the area of education in which I develop.

Unfortunately the current implementation does not work very well, look: Bug 103670

Although it is far from my favorite OS is good news Paint 3D can create 3D models in gltf format.
