FaceBook model viewer not working


(Offplan3d) #1

For the last few months i can’t load/play my SketchFab models inside of FaceBook app or webpage. I have been though the forums and tried the FB fixes which didn’t work. Recently i have heard that GLTF format models now work in FB so does anyone know how i can convert to this format and then share the model to FB?

Thanks- Dom

Hi Dom,

I’m afraid it’s due to changes on Facebook’s end. They have recently been changing the way different links are previewed / embedded in posts. There’s not much we can do on our end.

We automatically transcode all models to glTF, you just need to enable download.

Hi James,
thanks for the reply. Do you know roughly when SketchFab is going to be able to export .glb files for Facebook? Its seems like a big (and not very successful) work around at the moment.

Cheers- Dom

Hi Dom,

We have no short-term plan to move from glTF to GLB, but you can convert files with another tool such as this: https://sbtron.github.io/makeglb/
