Any chance the DracoCompression can be backported to v6?
I have no plans on backporting this to V6
Sorry to resurrect this topic. Where did we land on exporting glTF/GLB files? Is IRIS still the way to go?
I hand rolled a basic glTF Binary export we use internally now. It just takes the mesh from the RhinoObjects and writes it to a glb that we then load with threejs. Plenty to be improved, but that’s all we needed for a start.
Steve’s DracoCompression would be a huge improvement, but I haven’t looked into that yet.
Here’s a Mac plugin with a single export command:
glTFBinExport in it: gltf_binexporter.macrhi (268.8 KB)
I’ll compile a Windows version within the next few days so you can play around with it.
Thanks so much. I look forward to the windows version.
I assume this won’t bring material information along with it?
Here it is for Windows. It only works for Rhino WIP 7.20295.18003
glTF-BinExporter.rhi (278.1 KB)
It does export materials, but only the base color of the render material as far as I remember. It’s been a month or two since I made it.
Thanks so much. I’ll give this a go tonight!
Bumped the Rhino version to latest beta, and put it up on food4rhino now: https://www.food4rhino.com/app/gltfbinexport See the answer below instead.
I won’t pollute the thread with further updates
Okay, okay, one final update, because I moved it to a new package…
- Follow along in this thread for updates: glTF-BinExport
- Moved it to a different package. Install with the new PackageManager in Rhino 7. It’s called
glTFBin-Exporter(maybe marked as pre-release).
- Released it as Open Source and collaborating with McNeel to improve it https://github.com/Stykka/glTF-Bin (go give it a star on Github if you like it!)
