  1. @Madclaws- Take a look at the following PG scene. I quickly modified a scene @Wingnut posted last year - which I believe now accomplishes what you're trying to do. It's as simple as it gets. Look at your console to read the loaded mesh in the meshes array for the scene. Also, change the value on line 24 to see that you're able to affect the mesh in the array; and or modify the mesh any way you like. https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#3FV2X#28 DB
  2. @Madclaws - I would have to look at your code and how you're using the loader and the Babylon Assets Manager in order to understand where you're having problems. However, do you need to access the loadedMeshes array? What about using the Babylon Assets Manager as follows: let assetsManager = new BABYLON.AssetsManager(scene); let meshTask = assetsManager.addMeshTask("loading", "", "path to files", mesh_name.obj); meshTask.onSuccess = function(task) { 'Do stuff here, if necessary'
  3. @Madclaws - Firstly, your file names don't match, so unless you have edited the OBJ and MTL files yourself, the loader is looking for the same name MTL file. Start by opening your OBJ file in any text editor, and verify the name of the .mtl file the .obj file is looking for. This will be in one of the first few lines of the OBJ file. As it appears the OBJ file is looking for a different MTL file name, this is not normal. It;s always best to keep your OBJ, MTL, and JPG (texture file) the same name as every exporter I've ever used writes these as the same name; and looks for the same name f
  4. Hi @Tomek My apologies - I haven't been on the forum much these past few weeks. If you would still like an example of this, then I expect to be able to set up a simple scene which accomplishes this.I have an insurmountable amount of work backlogged, but need to move back into the community. I'll try and let you know if I'm not able to get to this tomorrow; as it won't take long to build. DB
  5. I don't know if this might apply, however for a recent app, I used the (X,Y) canvas pick point to pass through, and set a separate control (mouse wheel, keypad) to set a dynamic Z distance from the camera in world space. This simple function allowed me to draw vertices and create meshes in three dimensions quickly and easily. I also drew a line from my camera to the (X,Y,Z) world space coordinate as a visual reference with a simple icon attached to the end point on the selected position to allow easier navigation. And for my app's specific needs, I provided a numeric Z depth reading in the UI
  6. Ah.. @Wingnut - You're always good for a laugh!😆 He has a re-shoot next week, and I'm going to try and make the shoot if I can work out the logistics. The only thing that might keep me away is that I'm scheduled for the G2E show in Vegas next week; so we'll see how it goes. Anyway, if I get a picture with the Captain, you know the first place I'm going to post it. On a different note (no pun intended), I'm waiting on FedEx to deliver my new keyboard this morning. It truly looks like a science station right off the bridge of the Enterprise. I mention this as it's the perfe
  7. Hello all... Unfortunately due to traffic, I didn't arrive on the lot in time to make my lunch appointment. I was totally bummed, however my new Producer for 3rd Brain Technologies Janet Arlotta has a re-shoot with him in about a week. And this time, I'll be there with bells on.🔔 Not going to stand up Captain Kirk twice. @Deltakosh - good question! I've got to ask if he's using Babylon.js. I can't believe I didn't think of this one! Cheers, DB
  8. I get to meet and hang out with William Shatner this Wednesday... just me and him... WhoooHoooo! I've lived quite a life... the original Starship captain... Anyone have any questions I should ask? DB
  9. I had serious issues capturing into Blender. I ran my Kinect(s) into MotionBuilder and then exported FBX to Blender without any problems. In working with motion capture for 20+ years, I see too many problems with capturing into Blender right now; until someone writes a proper plugin which is simple to use. DB
  10. As @jerome mentions, a PG scene will provide you with many responses and hopefully a solution for your specific issue. However, if you aren't familiar with the Optimization of LOD, then here are the docs: https://doc.babylonjs.com/how_to/in-browser_mesh_simplification DB
  11. @Varsha Kamble Your math is incorrect. The font that you use is not able to fit in the math you set for the length of your plane and dynamic texture. If you still have issues, then I can easily build a PG scene which accommodates any text. But I hope you can identify your errors in expecting the font to fit within the mesh. DB
  12. Hey Devs and All, I'm just feeling a bit sentimental about how far this forum has come the past 4 years. @Deltakosh and @davrous ( + others) have given us a creative outlet that has turned into a new frontier. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate that I am able to come to a place that provides me not only technical advice, but I've made many new friends as well. Much love to you all. DB
  13. Hey @jdavid It's all in the math. Look at the least common hardware you want to support, and do an evaluation of vertices, materials, and textures. Always use a power 2 texture until we enter full support of WebGL 2.0. I always look at my code as a water pipe and a bathtub... how much water can I push through the pipe and how much water can the bathtub hold? DB
  14. You can dispose of meshes, materials, and textures at anytime. And I often use the RunAfterRender() function to apply different attributes to the scene. However, there are may ways to do this... so RunAfterRender() may not work for your scene. However, if you have a command of JavaScript, then this should be simple... as the babylon.js framework has all the functions in place. If you need more assistance, then post a playground scene. DB
