Model auto rotation


(Kurt Drubbel) #1

Is there a way to have your model orbit by itself without having to animate it ?
In 3d settings, a toggle for auto orbit ?

You could do it using the custom embed fuctionality. But then it only works if you share the modified link.
Check out this page for more info:

Hope it helps :smile:

Thanks @essimoon , it's samething already, maybe for futre updates some auto animation would be nice.


Yep, we only have the autospin parameter at the moment.

We can enable autospin for external link via embed functionality.
But is there a way to enable autospin for your models AT Sketchfab?

(Stephomi) #6

It's not possible at the moment.

Thanks for your answer @stephomi, but do you have it in the plans of your team?
It would be really awesome functionality because a lot of people look a portfolio AFTER they came from external link, and they see your models not in all its glory


You can add the URL parameter to a regular model page, but they would have to navigate directly there, for example:

We may offer a more user-friendly autospin on the model page in the future. I'll add your '+1'.

Checked it again, but I can see no settings for adding it for a regular modeling page.
Am I missing something?


You have to do it manually:

Hi Folks, nearly 2 years since i posted this. As this is a model showing service i think it would be crucial to have all the tools possible to show your model at it's best. Autorotation would probably help 85% of the models in here. I would have had this in here since day 1. Just my 2 cents :wink:

Still not an option in Sketchfab? … I’m actually surprised. Turntables are such a thing in the 3D industry. It’s even built into Zbrush with an option to render it out as a movie. This feature would get a lot of feedback and would probably be used quite often.

There is auto rotation on the thumbnails now, guess a “make it spin” button would be a nice feature if added to the settings tab of the viewer. That would let people choose from themself if they want it spinning or not :slight_smile:
personally the thumbnail is enough for me and i rather look at the model at my own pace but i do get why some might like to just see it spinning
