    Only with the Viewer API at the moment. You can have an animation activate based on an annotation event:

    Hi,

    It's because the images are hosted on an insecure page (HTTP) so Chrome blocks the request for security purposes. You should add an SSL certificate to your site so they are hosted over HTTPS.

    Are there any plans for extending annotations to a kind of "public" & maybe user restricted annotation/comment feature for getting feedback on parts of WIP models from clients / colleagues? I'm pretty sure I already saw it in some web based model viewer, but not sure where exactly. Not something I currently need but would keep in mind for future improvements... Maybe when embedded into basecamp/trello etc or also on restricted client websites it would be a nice way of staying on track with the progress of more iterative model designs... :)

    @SilaS - you could include the short link to another model in an annotation, like this: https://skfb.ly/ArGr

    Hi Pierre,

    Sorry about that. It's a bug on our end, but we should have a fix coming soon. I'll follow up with news.

    Thank you for your reply, James. So I'm just wondering if there is any tool that can add annotation to a 3D model like Sketchfab and save it as dae or fbx file (it will be used in an iOS app built with Unity)? I understand this is not a Sketchfab issue, and just want to see if someone here have such experience or knowledge that I can learn from, thank you.

    hello I think annotations are very important for the kind of clients we have, do you have in plan to make them more customizable or with the possibility to add also picture inside etc...this would be very useful for configurator or interactive demo of tools or museum staff

    @James - I was suggesting a feature where clients can ADD annotations for feedback loops in iterative design themselves. That was my main point :) Regarding private access, I'm sure you guys already have solutions for this availiable :)

    Hi James,

    To explain more in the above screen shot when I am clicking the point circled with red, the annotation created the other side of the model (Annotation 1). I guess this explains more about the issue I am facing. I am due with the a demo with client and so do let me know on this asap. 

    Thanks in advance.

    @melledijkstra - It's not possible with the API yet, but it's something we hope to implement in the future.

    Hello.

    I saw this from the Labs page

    https://labs.sketchfab.com/experiments/custom-annotations/

    Is having the ability to embed a youtube video into annotations available? and if so, where could I find the documentation for it?

     

    Thanks.

    @Mknight13 - When you downgrade, all your existing content will be preserved, but you won't be able to make any edits to 3D settings - it will show an error that you have too many annotations for your plan.

    Hey, when I update the position of an annotation's camera, how long it takes until it takes effect? I have a scene with 20 annotations (max amount for my currrent profile), I change annotations' camera/view, click "Use current point of view" then save settings. But when I exit editing and go back to the model, the annotations still have the old point of view. What am I doing wrong?

    James - if we localize the annotations, does each language count toward the maximum limit, e.g. 1 model with 12 annotations and 6 languages = 72 annotations, or is it still only 12?

    @mark.energy - Not at the moment! One solution is to manually add some meshed geometry to your model, place annotations on it, then make the mesh 100% transparent.

    @moritzw - Ah I see, thanks for clarifying. https://matter.io/ has an interesting solution to this (and is currently working to improve it), by embedding the whole annotation editor in their site for customers to use.

    @dedend - Is the problem with specific characters? Can you show me what it looks like vs. what it should look like? Feel free to email me: support@sketchfab.com

    Hi. When adding an annotation to an object like -for instance- a plane or a thin object, an annotation that is placed on one side is also visible in the opposite side of the same object. Is it possible to avoid this? I want an annotation to be only visible on the side where it was placed. This issue does not seem to be happening when putting the annotation on thicker objects. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Why is not possible the make a reference for another modell on sketchfab in the annotations? It will be a very usefull - killer feature - for presentation of huge modells!

    Hi! My annotations have images linked them. The images work on Firefox and IE but not with Chrome (both PC nad mobile Chrome versions don't display the images). Are you aware of this problem? 

    My model: https://skfb.ly/6UEKv

    Best wishes

    Yes, that's what I had in mind. A little database connection for basic comment function by authorized third parties like clients directly in the sketchfab viewport :) Do it! ;)

    Thank you! Uploading them to imgur was an immediate solution.

    Are you planning to localize your annotations using the Viewer API? ( https://sketchfab.com/developers/viewer/examples?sample=Localization )

    There is no limit to the number of annotations you can create with the Viewer API.

    @urbanid3d  - Thanks. I went in and changed some annotation views and it worked fine. Are you sure you clicked Save Settings after setting the new cameras?

    @fatimazulfiqar03 No, I'm afraid it's not possible to export annotations to other formats or software. They only exist on Sketchfab.
