How to view .stl file inside a form?

I’ve added the Aspose 3D nuget package to my vb.net winforms project in visual studio. Now I want to import a .stl file from my hard drive and view it inside the main form of my application. Preferably I would want to view it in a panel or any other supported control inside my main form (form1).
Here’s what I’ve done so far:

Imports Aspose.ThreeD
Public Class Form1
Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim Scene1 As New Scene
'What to do next??
End Sub
End Class

Note: Im comfortable using C# as well.


We are checking the feasibility of your requirements and will get back to you shortly.


We have a sample project AssetBrowser which implements a WinForm control that can be used to render the scene.
