Get model download url with API?

(Quentin Tousart) #1

Hi all,

I'm looking a way to download a model (marked as downloadable) from sketchfab API.
I took a look at API operation /models/{uid} but did not find anything referencing the original model URL. Actualy an equivalent of clicking the "download" button smile

Is there a way to get that URL from the API ?


Hi there,

We're working on a Download API, but it's very much a work in progress. Currently, only a few partners have access for testing purposes.

I may be wrong here, but I believe the actual download URL is generated dynamically when someone clicks Download, so it's not possible to generate it yourself using the uid.

Stay tuned!

has this api been implemented in the meantime?



Update to avoid confusion:

While we may implement a Download API in the future, it is not on our short-term roadmap. There is currently no experimental version available for testing by anyone.

Hello @james, do you have any updates on this? We would really like to integrate sketchfab search, viewer and download in our web app. Thanks


Hello @coiron,

I'm afraid there's no update at the moment, but we hope to have a solution long-term.

Any word on a Download URL through the api being in the works yet?


We are now actively working on a Download API (or rather, download endpoints in the Data API) (cc @mauricesvay )
