Sample tilesets for learning how to use 3D Tiles and a simple Node.js server for serving tilesets.

These tilesets are generated with 3d-tiles-samples-generator. License information can be found in each sample's README.


Clone this repo and install Node.js. From the root directory of this repo, run:

npm install

Then to host the tilesets locally, run:

npm start

The tilesets are hosted at http://localhost:8003/tilesets/.

To load a tileset with CesiumJS use:

var viewer = new Cesium.Viewer('cesiumContainer');

var tileset = viewer.scene.primitives.add(new Cesium.Cesium3DTileset({
    url : 'http://localhost:8003/tilesets/TilesetWithDiscreteLOD/tileset.json'

viewer.zoomTo(tileset, new Cesium.HeadingPitchRange(0, -0.5, 0));

When testing tilesets using this server that you do not want to accidentally push to git, create a localTilesets directory, place the tilesets there, and access like 'http://localhost:8003/localTilesets/GitIgnoredTileset/'.

See the in each tileset's directory for further instructions and usage restrictions.

Model Screenshot Description
Discrete LOD Tileset with discrete LODs.
Expiration Tileset that expires and re-requests new content every five seconds.
Request Volume Tileset with request volumes.
Tree Billboards Tileset that combines instanced 3D models and billboards.
