Scaling a gltf model

I want to scale a gltf model I have . Here is the code I have :

			camera.attachControl(canvas, true);

			BABYLON.MeshBuilder.CreateBox("box",{})

			const light = new BABYLON.HemisphericLight("light", new BABYLON.Vector3(1, 1, 0));

			BABYLON.SceneLoader.Append("./city_scene_tokyo/", "scene.gltf", scene);

			return scene;
		};
		
		const scene = createScene(); /*Call the createScene function*/

		/* Register a render loop to repeatedly render the scene*/
		engine.runRenderLoop(function () {
			if (render) {
				scene.render();
			}
		});

		/*Watch for browser/canvas resize events*/
		window.addEventListener("resize", function () {
			engine.resize();
		});

Here’s what I tried:

		let render = true

		/*Add your code here matching the playground format*/ 
		const createScene = function () {

			const scene = new BABYLON.Scene(engine);  

			const camera = new BABYLON.ArcRotateCamera("camera", -Math.PI / 2, Math.PI / 2.5, 15, new BABYLON.Vector3(0, 0, 0));

			const light = new BABYLON.HemisphericLight("light", new BABYLON.Vector3(1, 1, 0));

			let city = BABYLON.SceneLoader.Append("./city_scene_tokyo/", "scene.gltf", scene);
                        city.scaling = new BABYLON.Vector3(0.1,0.1,0.1)

			return scene;
		};
		
		const scene = createScene(); /*Call the createScene function*/

Hi!
I think you can scale down the model by scaling down meshes.
You can do this in the callback function of the SceneLoader.Append method like below.

BABYLON.SceneLoader.Append("./city_scene_tokyo/", "scene.gltf", scene, (meshes, _, skeletons) => {
  meshes.forEach((mesh) => {
    mesh.scaling = new BABYLON.Vector3(0.5, 0.5, 0.5)
  })
});

Thanks!
But what is _, skeletons?

The callback function has some parameters like meshes, particleSystems, skeletons and so on.
You can check these in the console like the code below.

BABYLON.SceneLoader.Append("./city_scene_tokyo/", "scene.gltf", scene, (...params) => {
  console.log(params)
});

@ynnek please consider creating your repro in the babylon playground next time :slight_smile: https://playground.babylonjs.com/

It’s not working . I tried it like you said ,

BABYLON.SceneLoader.Append("./city_scene_tokyo/", "scene.gltf", scene, (meshes, skeletons) => {
				meshes.forEach((mesh) => {
					mesh.scaling = new BABYLON.Vector3(0.1, 0.1, 0.1)
				})
		});

@user1 I don’t know your model’s data… So I can’t figure out the problem…
Check out the PG below where the scaling process works well!

My model : City Scene Tokyo - Download Free 3D model by Sooi Cherchye (@sooi) [b25d23f] - Sketchfab

@user1 I don’t know if it is because of my working environment, but I can’t even load the file…
I double-checked with blender and also failed…

Ok , thanks for trying . I’ll see what I can do.

@user1 please please create a repro in the playground

Please provide a playground, but if you want to scale the model, you don’t want to loop through all the meshes. That will scale multiple times (at least twice) since there is a root mesh that is the parent of everything. You should be able to scale the model by scaling just the root mesh, which is always mesh[0] returned by the loader.

But how do I load my own model in the playground?

@bghgary Thanks for correcting my mistake!
