This was super-fun and super-quick to develop (thanks to GitHub Copilot) 🙂
I present a sample application that searches Sketchfab and downloads glTF model matching given query string. For extra effect, it even opens the model with view3dscene if it is present on
By default it looks for
cthutlhu and happily downloads the first result, extracting the ZIP and running view3dscene. From nothing -> Cthulhu 3D model!
Run with some command-line parameter to change the search string, to anything.
The code contains a simple class that downloads from Sketchfab. If you want, you can easily tweak it to download a particular model instead of the first search result. Read the “Usage” description for details.
