Huge amount of uploads + Delete API?

Hello world :slight_smile:

I was wondering what will happen with the oldest uploaded models if you have a significant amount of uploads a day for example. Are they automatically deleted or will they stay in my model warehouse for always ?

Regarding to this, I was wondering if there is a way to delete my models programmatically when I don't need them anymore, in order to avoid flooding sketchfab database with useless models. I don't see anything about that in the API doc.

Thanks for your attention,

Vincent

Hi Vincent,

We keep models forever unless the author deletes them, or we are required to remove them by a DMCA takedown (which rarely happens). Don't worry about "flooding our database" :stuck_out_tongue:

You can, however, do:

DELETE https://api.sketchfab.com/v2/models/MODEL_UID

Be warned, this cannot be undone.

Soon to be stable and publicly documented v3, stay tuned!
