    Does not work with Cardboard V1 magnetic button.

    Why does it seems like the VR functionallity doesn't work anymore for HTC Vive in the latest Firefox web browser. It was working wonderfully before the the webbrowser was upgrraded. All your instructions are pointing and referring to older web browsers. What can i do to be able to se the Sketchfab objects again?

    I've had a bit of trouble getting it to work with Chrome on the Rift, but with Firefox it works great.

    One suggestion: I would love to have a way to snap-turn, say 45 or 90 degrees at a time. Many apps do this, and I could provide specific examples if needed. I do enjoy being able to look around in any direction, but with the Rift, looking away from the desk-mounted sensors tends to lose tracking, on my controls especially but sometimes also my view. Plus the cable ends up stretched uncomfortably over my shoulder when looking away. So for simply jumping in and exploring models at my desk, a joystick turn would be great - I even habitually keep clicking the joystick side to side, trying to to make it happen. Thanks!

    Hi James,
    I was using Firefox to navigate through sketchfab models in VR and it was brilliant but lately it's not working as well and is difficult to get the right scale. I've tried all the instruction given on the site including steam, WebXR, etc. but it's not working. I have an Oculus Rift.

    Nope, no good!?

    I have a gaming laptop and a gaming desktop!!??

    • Installed Steam and SteamVR,
    • changed flags on laptop,
    • changed flags on desktop,
    • changed flags through VR browser,
    • opened models,
    • message comes up to change the flags,
    • used chrome, firefox, opera, edge...

    No point in having VR on models when they don't work in VR. And they used to work great till this year!!??

    Will have to find another site that can cope with VR walk-throughs.

    3 years have passed and STILL no snap turn on Rift/Quest...

  • russelllewisolson

    There basically are no controls and some manager just wanted to claim they made a VR mode

  • fangzhangmnm

    can i rotate the view in sitting VR mode?

  • fabnick

    Hi. There is a second wave of XR coming. You really should do something about the navigation.

    You need to be able to TURN the view. My head falls off. 

    One plus for turn/rotate.

    Thank you.
