Import a 3D Model

You can import a 3D model into High Fidelity that is hosted online or on your domain’s Asset Server. Importing your model rezzes it into your domain and adds it to your virtual world.

Import Models from the Cloud

If you want your model available to users in other domains, we recommend uploading it to a cloud hosting service of your choice.

  1. Locate and copy the URL of the model you would like to import. The model should be a OBJ or FBX format.
  2. In Interface, pull up your HUD or Tablet and go to Create.
  3. Select the ‘Model’ icon.
  4. Paste the model’s URL and click ‘Add’.

Import Models from the Asset Server

The Asset Server hosts files or assets that can either be added as-is to a domain or that are referenced by existing entities and scripts already in a domain. To import assets from the Asset Server, you must have permissions to rez entities in the domain that the Asset Server is running on.

  1. In Interface, pull up your HUD or Tablet and go to Create.
  2. Click ‘Open this Domain’s Asset Server’.
  3. In the Asset Browser, browse to the model you would like to import.
  4. Click ‘Add to World’. Then click ‘Add’ on the confirmation window that opens.
