Development of SPECTOR-3D, a three dimensional resistive code for stellarator-like plasmas, was reported. The code was designed to calculate characteristic modes of linear perturbations away from the plasma equilibrium, with an emphasis on unstable modes. The code was tested in the axisymmetric limit by comparing against existing tokamak codes, and the preliminary results for model three-dimensional helical plasmas were presented.
