To use DRACO compression, provide a path to the DRACO decoder. To use KTX2 compressed textures, provide a path to the KTX2 transcoder.

Change the property url to load new 3D content. The new content will be swapped as soon as loading is finished.

Use the hook useGltf to reuse a glTF model or to use parts of it.


See the hook useGltfAnimations on how to use animations of glTF Files.

The <GLTF> component supports interaction:

  on:click={() => {
    console.log('User clicked!')


  import { GLTF } from '@threlte/extras'

<GLTF castShadow receiveShadow url={'/models/flower.glb'} position={{ y: 1 }} scale={3} />


The <GLTF> component supports compressed glTF files.


You can set useDraco to true to use DRACO compression and Threlte will load a default DRACO decoder from Google servers, specifically

Or you can set useDraco to your own DRACO decoder path as a string.


You can set useMeshopt to true to use meshopt compression and Threlte will load a default meshopt decoder from Three, specifically
