How to export a point cloud / mesh directly to sketchfab

Since version 1.400 it is possible to directly export a dense point cloud or a mesh to Sketchfab. You can still obviously export a PLY/OBJ file and upload it manually to sketchfab, or you can export your reconstruction directly with a few clicks.

Pick the extracted mesh you wish to upload to Sketchfab and from the “Export Format” dropdown menu (4) select “Upload to Sketchfab” (4).

Edit the export settings to match your desired export settings and when you are ready to proceed simply click the “Export” Button (5).

The sketchfab upload settings window will appear.

You can optionally fill in the model name, description and tags for the model you wish to upload.

A similar workflow is available when selecting “Export Stereo Point Cloud” from the “Export menu” (1).

If you wish your model to be shown in our showcase section,  feel free to touch base with us on our forum or via email!
