MootUp Adds Sketchfab Integration

Back to overview

We are pleased to announce that MootUp, a virtual event platform, now supports direct import of Sketchfab models into its events.

MootUp is a fully customizable 3D WebXR virtual events and meetings platform that scales to tens of thousands of participants. Users can choose from over 50 space templates, such as exhibition halls, streaming stages, cafes, lounges, or breakout rooms, or create their own spaces from scratch. All these spaces can be decorated with models from Sketchfab.

MootUp users can now import both CC-licensed models and purchased Sketchfab Store assets into MootUp. Events on MootUp can be viewed on any device, including laptops, desktops, mobile phones, and VR and AR headsets, no installation required.

This integration is made possible by the Sketchfab API.
