Free WordPress.com hosted sites

Sketchfab model embeds are natively supported (via our oEmbed endpoint). Simply drop a model URL in your WordPress post and it will become an embedded model. See the WordPress Support page for more details.

Check out this example.

WordPress.org powered sites

We made a WordPress plugin that lets you easily embed any Sketchfab model on WordPress. It adds a little button to the post editor asking for the id of the model. Then you can embed it directly on your blog. You can download the WordPress plugin here.

You can also use a shortcode in your blogpost to embed Sketchfab models like this:

[sketchfab id="the_model_id"]

The model ID is the 32-character string in the model's URL, e.g. "442c548d94744641ba279ae94b5f45ec"

You can also add embed parameters like this:

[sketchfab id="the_model_id" start="0" spin="" controls="0" transparent="0"]

Note for free wordpress.com users: you can’t use this plugin as WordPress disabled plugins as well as the iframe tag on their servers.

Rami Yushuvaev has also created a WordPress plugin that adds Sketchfab to your oEmbed providers. You can find it here.

    I like how I can finally have 3D models on my portfolio page on a wordpress.com website, although the portrait format that it gives is so ugly it takes up the whole length of my screen. :( is there a way to get around this?

    @James that sounds awesome! I've also had a bit of an issue with aligning the sketchfab embed to the center of my post. Any type of edit I do to the link breaks it. Should I contact Wordpress?
    Thank you for your help.

    @jessie.van.aelst - Yes, you may need to contact them. The embed aspect ratio is something we can adjust from our end, but that sounds more like a style issue on their end.

    Alright, I've send Wordpress.com a tweet about it. Will update with more info once I have something.

    @kaos - I'm afraid not at the moment, as far as I know.
