Babylon shows a different result


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I'm a newbie  to Babylon.js, I got a question need someone to help.

When I load a  3D model (eg. obj format model) with Babylon.js, it shows a different result than I expected.

The correct result should be (The door is on the left side)



But with Babylon.js, the model is like below : (the door is on the right side, it seems that all the meshs are rendered opposite direction)



Can anybody tell me why?

Is there a parameter that can be set to correct this issue?

There is another issue with this right-hand model if the active camera is a FreeCamera.

When the mouse moves in left - right direction, the model moves up - down, while move the mouse up - down, the model moves left - right.

Can anybody tell me how to fix it?

Thanks for you guys' help.

I just found that I set the  rotation of FreeCamera mistake, sorry, please ignore the mouse move issue.


As the exporting tool I use has no such exporting option, I can't get a left handed model.

Still, there is something trouble me, it seems that babylon has Y as the up-axis, the building is not standing correctly.

Normally I should see the front, not the bottom of the building.  (You can use ArcRotateCamera to have a look what the building is)

could you please help me on this point.

Hi @fdeng

It looks like many CAD/3D software (mainly for buildings) have the height on the Z axis, while Babylon or other WebGL libraries have Y.

I encountered the same issue and I used a pivot matrix on my mesh to flip the two axis : https://playground.babylonjs.com/#4QU0BY#2

On lines 25-26 you can see the 1's are switched, an untouched matrix would look like this :

1, 0, 0, 0
0, 1, 0, 0
0, 0, 1, 0
0, 0, 0, 1

(You can also put values different than 1, and it will scale on the corresponding axis)

There might be others/better solutions but in my case it seems to work great, and allows to keep original positions.
