Drag and Drop Import

MOCHIZUKI Natsune has released a Blender addon that allows you to drag your OBJ, FBX, STL and other files directly into the Blender 3D viewport and have it import them. No more clicking Import and then having to filter through the proper import file type.

This is a free addon, not to be confused with the paid one on Blender Market.

I did not make this addon, but it's so incredibly useful that I figured people need to know about it.

  1. Please, please, please - does the addon work with, has it been tested on all platforms. If not which ones has it been tested on, as well as which version of Blender - here, as I understand it 3.51. Last, is it drop dead simple? Like Drag and Drop (which I haven't been able to prove - Mac Blender)? Thanks
