Blender: Let UUIDs be universally unique.


Three.js Blender Export

Exports Three.js' ASCII JSON format.


The exporter (r69 and earlier) has been completely replaced. Please ensure you have removed the io_three_mesh addon from your Blender addons directory before installing the current addon (io_three).


Recommended Blender version >= 2.73.0

Copy the io_three folder to the scripts/addons folder. If it doesn't exist, create it. The full path is OS-dependent (see below).

Once that is done, you need to activate the plugin. Open Blender preferences, look for Addons, search for three, enable the checkbox next to the Import-Export: Three.js Format entry.

Goto Usage.


Should look like this:

C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.7X\scripts\addons

OR (for 2.6)

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.6X\scripts\addons


In your user's library for user installed Blender addons:

/Users/(myuser)/Library/Application Support/Blender/2.7X/scripts/addons


By default, this should look like:


For Ubuntu users who installed Blender 2.68 via apt-get, this is the location:



Activate the Import-Export addon under "User Preferences" > "Addons" and then use the regular Export menu within Blender, select Three.js (json).

Enabling msgpack

To enable msgpack compression copy the msgpack to scripts/modules.


Currently there is no import functionality available.
