glTF Import Plugin (Native 64-bit Windows DLL)

As my Ruby glTF importer was very slow when dealing with massive amounts of geometry, I present a new importer which is written in C (and some C++), and is very fast. It is still in Beta - so please provide feedback!

I can’t upload it to the extension warehouse because it is a compiled DLL and not ruby code.

Instructions:

Disable the existing glTF import via the extension manager if you installed it from the extension warehouse.

Download from here and unzip.
glTFImporter.zip (36.1 KB)

Copy glTFImporter.dll into C:\Program Files\SketchUp\SketchUp 2017\Importers

And that’s it, restart sketchup and under Imports you will find the option for “Khronos glTF Files (*.gltf, *.glb)”

Browse https://sketchfab.com/models/popular for models you may want to download.
(Select ‘Filters’ and select ‘Downloadable’)

Limitations: Triangle strips and Triangle fans are not supported, neither are lines, but to date, although they are mentioned in the glTF specification, I haven’t encountered them.

Update: Fixed an issue causing bugsplats, it is now much more robust.
Update: Changed resource texts, e.g. XmlImporter to glTFImporter.
