glTF Sample Models
Sample glTF 2.0 models are provided in one or more of the following forms of glTF:
- glTF (
.gltf) with separate resources:
.bin(geometry, animation, skins) and
.pngimage files. The supporting files are easily examined when separated like this, but must be kept together with the parent glTF file for the model to work.
- glTF (
.gltf) with embedded resources (as Data URIs). This form tends to be larger than the others, but Data URIs do have their uses.
- Binary glTF (
.glb) using the binary container format. These are easily shared due to the bundling of all the textures and mesh data into a single file.
- glTF (
.gltf) using the KHR_materials_pbrSpecularGlossiness extension. This is an alternate PBR (Physically Based Rendering) workflow that gives model artists an extra degree of freedom over glTF's core metallic/roughness PBR workflow.
README.md in each model's directory for license information.
Sample models help the glTF ecosystem, if you are able to contribute a model, see the contributing section below.
Model Publishing Services with glTF Download Capability
- Sketchfab offers auto-conversion of all of its downloadable models, including PBR models, to glTF format.
- Google's Poly offers certain 3D assets for download in glTF format.
Other glTF Models
For addition glTF models, see:
- Khronos glTF Asset Generator offers an extensive suite of test models to excersise each part of the glTF specification.
- Cesium's demo models and unit test models.
- Flightradar24's GitHub repo of aircrafts.
- Kenney • Assets hundreds of themed low-poly assets (nature, space, castle, furniture, etc.) provided by Kenney under CC0 licenses, including 30+ pirate themed models.
- Smithsonian open access 3D models
Contributing Sample Models
We appreciate sample model contributions; they help ensure a consistent glTF ecosystem.
To contribute a model, open a pull request with:
- A new subdirectory containing
- The model in as many glTF variations as reasonable (using the same directory structure as the others (example)). Tools for converting to glTF are here.
- A screenshot of the model, stored in a subdirectory called
- A README.md with information about the model. As shown in this example, this file should at least include the following elements:
- The name or title of the model
- An embedding of the screenshot
- Information about the license under which the model is published. We recommend to use a permissive license like Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License or even Creative Commons 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication , to allow people to share and adapt the models for their own use.
- Add the new model to the appropriate table.
