Animation Settings

You cannot edit or create animations on Sketchfab, but you can edit some animation properties.

The animation tools are available in 3D Settings.

  1. From your model, go to Settings → 3D Settings or add "/edit" to the end of any model URL.
  2. Select the Animation panel in the top left.
Only the model's author can access 3D Settings. Edits you make will not change your original file, they will only affect viewing on Sketchfab.
