API Key......how do I get one?

(Nimac) #1

Sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm brand new to Sketchfab. I have just registered and would like to have a try at uploading a model. However, I have no API key. How do I get one?

Once logged on the website click on Profile Menu (the Avatar) -> Settings -> "password and API"
( https://sketchfab.com/settings/password )

@nimac what uploader do you need the API token for? We could probably improve instructions for this exporter on how to find the API token.

I think that would be the Modo uploader. -neil.

Thanks for directing me to where I can find the API Key. I don't believe the tutorial explains this well enough. I had no idea how to get it......thought you may email it to me. Thought there may be a link after registering. No, I had to click on my Avatar, then go to settings, then look for Password and API. Not very intuitive IMO, or maybe my intuition just isn't good enough? -neil.

Hi @nimac,

could you give me the link of that tutorial?

@nimac Usually the instructions are on the exporter page https://sketchfab.com/exporters/modo and in the exporter itself, but this one doesn't seem to. We'll try to improve that in the future. Thanks for the info!


The exporter pages, including https://sketchfab.com/exporters/modo, have a link to the API Token in the instructions. These pages should be considered the "tutorials" while the blog post tutorials (if that's what we're talking about?) are mostly just announcements.

Hi Bart. Here's a link. -neil



Yes, that page includes a link:
