Object exported from Blender is flipped horizontally in Babylon js

I have TV object in .gltf format that is correct when is in Blender, when I export and use it in Babylon it flipped horizontally. Take a look at the TV’s buttons, they are on the right in Blender and left in Babylon.

And the 3D .gltf file:

Adding @JCPalmer but I think I remember it comes from the handedness being different in both tools.

You could try to set scene.useRightHandedSystem to true in Babylon ???

Yeah, useRightHandedSystem worked, Thanks.

The issue must be something else specific to your scene - in the sandbox https://sandbox.babylonjs.com/ the model looks the same it does in your blend file screenshot.

Actually you might have reparented wrongly without keeping the root node in your scene then

This is how I parenting all parts to access them later:

var parent = new BABYLON.Mesh(obj.name, scene);
for (mesh in objArray) {
    var tempMesh = objArray[mesh];
    tempMesh.parent = parent;
    tempMesh.parentMoveToo = true;

Is there some thing wrong in it?

objArray is response of :

BABYLON.SceneLoader.ImportMesh("", obj.root, obj.image, scene, function (objArray) {

The first node in objArray is a special mesh with transformations to deal with right to left handedness correction. All children of this node should stay children for correct display.

Anyway, I think the first answer from @sebavan is the right one, GLTF is right handed and Babylon is left handed, if you want the same display you need to add scene.useRightHandedSystem = true.

Look at this obj file,in same code .gltf flipped and .obj not flipped I add this line:

Now tv is correct but door not.
What shall I do?

This is simple keep your scene left handed and do not reparent gltf without the root or dupplicate it as it is responsible for the conversion.

I really don’t know what are you talking about? I sent my code in top answers
The Answer

But now I wondering.
Every mesh I export have a few parts, that In code I unify them with a custom empty parent mesh:
var parent = new BABYLON.Mesh(obj.name, scene);
Then when I want to access their parts I use _children.

I am speaking about your code, you are changing the parent of the meshes to another one which does not follow the same properties.

by default in gltf the root node has a special setup to work in left handed scenes. by breaking this parenting the meshes will have problems to render as you d like.

Thanks, I get it, no need for .gltf parenting but .obj still need.
How to access it as one object in scene?
I move position of root part of .gltf but it will not move anything.
When I parenting them, I access them via their parent and then move parent move all parts too. It can be done by putting them in an array but whenever I want to scale, position or rotate them, I have to loop through it and it’s a little bit awkward.

Why don’t you create a parent node with the same rotation and scaling as the gltf root node and move all the meshes in the OBJ under that node? Like this:

Still no difference.
not known for dragging object.
