ImportMesh with renderOutline


Recommended Posts

Hi, new to Babylon.js and the forum. I want to use the renderOutline property on the rabbit.babylon model from BONES demo.

BABYLON.SceneLoader.ImportMesh("", "models/", "rabbit.babylon", scene, function (newMeshes, particleSystems, skeletons) {
  var mdl_Rabbit = newMeshes[0];
  mdl_Rabbit.position = new BABYLON.Vector3(0, 0, 40);
  mdl_Rabbit.renderOutline = true;

It changes the position of the rabbit but it does not render outline. Also for some reason, I could use newMeshes[12] and the rabbit would still display correctly. mdl_Rabbit.showBoundingBox doesn't work either.

Overall it's obvious I don't understand how the ImportMesh works. So, what am I missing and how do I get renderOutline to work?

Hi @peraxel7 

it might already be working, but very hard to see.

try adding outlineWidth and outlineColor to make it more visible, see example below of skull PG demo.



I just tried doing it on the rabbit, and it doesn't work out of the box because the rabbit is made out of several meshes, in which case you need to "apply" the outline on each mesh.

Ok, got it working now. I was actually surprised that debugLayer could show the bounding box whereas I had failed. Thanks for the comments. Iterating all the meshes to outline all of them will probably come into use one of these days at well.

Turns out I needed to set newMeshes[0] to newMeshes[1].

At least I got to spend a few hours reading the documentation :) Onwards to the next user error!
