How to get a preview thumbnail simply?


(Jimmylet) #1

Hello !
Youtube provides a simple method for retrieving thumbnails of its videos. Is there a link to retrieve the miniature of a sketchfab model?

Or how?

Thank you !

Hi Jimmy,

you can use our screenshots tool:

You can also retrieve a model's current thumbnail from the API.

Data: https://docs.sketchfab.com/data-api/v3/index.html#!/models/get_v3_models_uid

oEmbed: https://sketchfab.com/developers/oembed

Or get any screenshot from the Viewer (this is how the screenshot generator works): https://sketchfab.com/developers/viewer/functions#api-getScreenShot
