WHAT IS A MESH OBJECT?
Mesh is a name given to 3D objects created using softwares such as Blender or 3DMaxx.
Just about anything can be created with mesh. You can learn how to build your own (we offer classes!), but you don't have to. We have lots of mesh available for free in our commons library. Learn about the libraries in the next section.
In this image, the terrain, the balloons, popcorn machine, bench, figure eating popcorn, etc., are all mesh objects.
ADD a MESH OBJECT to YOUR REGION
THE MESH LIBRARY
3DWebWorldz offers builders a free library of objects they can simply click and add to their region builds. (Credit to object builders found under Top Toolbar: Region | Credits)
In the video above you saw the Mesh Library accessed during the building process. You can also access it to browse through the catalog or to upload new items of your choosing.
CREATING YOUR OWN 3D MESH OBJECTS
You can use any 3D Modelling software program that allows you to export as a GLTF.
We recommend Blender, an open source and free download program. https://Blender.org.
Screenshot of Blender - this example will be used below.
Private Tutoring and Classes are available. Contact Evie_Marie inworld or via Discord.
3D MESH OBJECT RESOURCES
You can also find and import objects found in public libraries such as:
https://sketchfab.com/feed ** recommended
New libraries seem to pop up every single day. Do a search if the two listed above doesn't suit your needs.
ADD NEW OBJECTS to MESH LIBRARY
STEP ONE: ZIP UP YOUR FILES
a) Highlight the files and textures (subfolders if they exist).
IMPORTANT: You should be able to SEE your .gltf file -- >
in this case the file = scene.gltf
(remember that filename, we need it later)
b) Right click -> SEND TO / Compressed (zipped) folder
STEP TWO: CHECK YOUR FILE -- VERY IMPORTANT
Save yourself time and frustration by checking your model in a GLTF Viewer before importing. We recommend this viewer:
Literally drag and drop your zipped file into the viewer window.
If it looks good there, it should successfully import into 3DWebWorldz.com.
STEP THREE: UPLOAD INTO 3DWEBWORLDZ
1) Open building tools and navigate to the editing tools panel.
2) The edit tools panel is separated into three sections: Add / Edit / Upload. Find the Upload section.
3) Click the Upload Mesh button and fill out the form.
