How do I upload OBJ model with MTL?

Upload a zip file that contains obj, mtl and texture files.
Example: https://wp3dprinting.com/popcorn.zip

My “Maximum upload file size” is too small, what should I do?

Either ask your tech support to increase post_max_size and upload_max_filesize values or use a specific plugin that does the job.

I’m trying to view a 500mb model, why is it loading so slow?

The plugin does not have any magic tricks to quickly load and display large models.
To provide the best experience for your site visitors try to keep models under 10mb by reducing the number of polygons.
The PRO version of the plugin has ZIP compression option which is useful for faster model downloading.

How do I protect my models by restricting their download?

Rule of a thumb: if a model is viewable – it’s downloadable.
The only way to protect your models offered by the plugin is to convert them to GIF or WEBM.
After the conversion the source models should be removed manually through WordPress Media Library.

How do I translate the plugin?

kind of file tested : GLB Source Generator: ESKO ArtiosCAD -> .U3D -> aspose web app conversion to GLB ------------------------------------------- I've tested fews weeks ago another options with 3D viewer plugins, problems usually : can't detect base panel or bad interpretations and high price. Now I've tested this plugin and this is simply amazing: good interpretation of GLB files, GUI looks clean. Great job guys, you made a nice plugin . Don't stop !
