Model thumbnail not visible in Facebook embed


(Iggy Design) #1

Hello ,i have made this model here:
When i post this to Facebook, the post looks like this:
And it should be more like this as i set it up:

Is there something i am doing wrong and is there any workarround to fix this? The thing is no one will open a blank white post,i think.... if this is how it is,i will need to post a picture with a sketchfab link in the comments...

Thanx in advance!! :slight_smile:

click on the right corner and hit that button
in english it's "refresh shared attachemnt" or something around that :slight_smile:

so post it on facebook and force it to update, sometimes if you post to quick it didn't generate a tumbnail and facebook then takes the nothing and sticks with it

hmm then maybe try to take another new thumbnail in sketchfab via 3d editor - and the option in the left corner (save view)
and try again in 30min

usually that works for me, but facebook can be a really stubborn little creature sadly :smiley:


Usually, this indicates that Facebook's cache needs to be refreshed, see:

However, we think there is a bug on their end and they are not displaying the correct image for the thumbnail. We're in contact with them about it, but it does not seem to be a problem on our end.

My problem still persists unfortunately. Tried the debugger too :
Hopefully they handle this thing in the future. Also,this is the first time i have this problem,and i must specify only on PC. The thumb is visible on mobile. This model is different from my previous ones in 2:1 texture format ratio and not 1:1. Not sure if that matters.

Thank you very much guys! :slight_smile:
