Before uploading to your Sketchfab profile, you'll need to create a 3D model or scan. There are plenty of software options out there - we've highlighted a few popular ones in the Creating 3D Models section.
1. Prepare your 3D Files
We support lots of 3D formats, and the one you choose depends on your software and needs. However, for the most reliable and robust results, we recommend OBJ or FBX. Most software can export these formats.
If you're using OBJ, it should include a MTL file, and textures if you have them. If you're using FBX, textures can be embedded or separate.
Combine all your files into a ZIP. Not only does this allow uploading textures/materials all at once, it also reduces upload time.
Login to Sketchfab and click Upload on any page. Or, drag and drop your files anywhere on the page.
Choose the ZIP file you just created, then give your model a name, description, tags, etc.
Pro / Premium / Business: You can make your model Private and Password-Protected if this model is for clients or a work in progress.
3. Check the model appearance
After the model processing finishes - move, rotate, and zoom it into the best position, and click Save View. This will save the default position/orientation and set the thumbnail preview you see on your profile page or elsewhere.
If you want other users to be able to use your content, turn on Download and choose a license.
If you want to change the model's rotation axes, add lights or annotations, edit materials, or anything else, click 3D Settings.
From the model page, click Share to show off your model on social media, or Embed it almost anywhere on the web!
