Sketchfab to possibly host native LDraw model support

Sketchfab to possibly host native LDraw model support
Hello fellow builders and fans Smile

I have a very exciting announcment to make: I have been in touch with the Sketchfab ( for those who do not know what it is) team to find out wether or not the current state of exported LDraw models to 3DS could be improved, or even to make possible the support of ldr and mpd files native to their service.

Basically, this piece of news has two objectives:

Establish a basis to gauge the number of people that would be interested in such a feature to showcase their models online, in full WebGL 3D (note that I have been using the Sketchfab WebGL iFrame/API for over 2 years now on my blog)

Get a sense of the priority in making the current features of exported models from ldr/mpd to 3DS improved (texturing and primitive substitution).

For those of you who have never seen what a model looks like on there, feel free to browse my Sketchfab gallery at and click on any other models you would like to see!

(Note: make sure you have full WebGL support enabled on your browser as you might end up seeing a snapshot fallback of the model if not enabled or supported).

Industrial Design, Linux, Lego.
