Fire: JanusVR Importer and Exporter for Blender 3D

Fire is a Blender addon that exports the current scene to the JanusVR FireBoxHTML-format. It generates the XML description of the room automatically, exports the objects and materials and launches into JanusVR with just one click. It can also import scenes directly from your PC or websites, just give it a URL.

It optionally also supports instant publication over the IPFS network (no server needed!).



  • IPFS (only required for IPFS publication)
To use IPFS, it must be present in the PATH. When not using the IPFS gateway, you need to run the IPFS daemon locally ("ipfs daemon").



  1. Download this repository as .zip file:
  2. Blender -> User Preferences -> Addons -> Install from File -> Select the .zip, enable the addon
