This announcement is out of date, and some information is deprecated. You can find up-to-date information about the Blender exporter in the Help Center.

Big news for our blender users: thanks to Bart Crouch, we now have a blender exporter, which means you can upload your models directly from within blender to Sketchfab with a single click.


  • 1-click uploading
  • Api Key is stored, so only needs to be entered once
  • Uploading is done in the background, so you can continue using Blender
