Website Update: What’s new on Sketchfab this week? (Week 51)

Back to overview

As we’re preparing for the Holidays, we feature a number of usability improvements, including a new issue reporter.

Model display

  • We improved the load time of embeds: we’re now no longer loading background environment maps if they’re not needed.
  • We improved the ranking of models on the category/tag galleries for more relevancy.
  • We fixed an issue where annotations would sometimes display as ‘null’.

Model editing

  • We’re now displaying a thumbnail when you take a screenshot of your model.
  • We added an Issue Reporter to the settings menu. This allows you to flag specific problems with your model so we can investigate.


File import

  • We fixed an issue in our PLY importer which could cause certain files to fail uploading.
  • When importing FBX files, we now automatically assign the correct Sketchfab materials to your model.
