DRACO support for 3D model loading

New Member

I am looking to create a viewer for my 3D model of a gaiter.  The glb file that I was provided incorporates DRACO mesh compression.   I am able to successfully upload the glb file to the product page, but when I preview the site it doesn't show.  Nothing shows.  Is there any way for Shopify to support and present glb files with Draco?

Yes, we also absolutely need this. Please support Draco.

DRACO would be an important implementation. Please have a look into this issue

Hey @kruthoffer@catmandrew @Unsphere 

Are you still searching for DRACO support. We've implemented it on our buildin3d platform and we have done some integrations with Shopify?

Not OP, but I ran into the same problem.

Seems like the problem now is that Shopify can't generate the USDZ-files from a DRACO-compressed GLB.

This is the error I get when I try to upolaod a GLB-file with DRACO-compression:

just happened to stumble across this when looking for something else

In case it's of Interest our application which is a powerful 3d configurator handles Draco compressed models and we also convert them to USDZ at run time so you can view them in AR

We will do a integration with Shopify for sure in the near future
