Why a 3D object exported from my 3D modeling software and uploaded to CoSpaces would turn and move backwards along a path?


If the front of an uploaded object is not correct that means that the coordinate system used in the model is not aligned to that of CoSpaces. CoSpaces uses the following axes for orientation:

Here are some possible fixes:

  • Turn the root pivot of the model so that the Y axis points forward (has to be done in the 3D modeling program)
  • Make the item a child of another item (e.g. an invisible cuboid), and move the cuboid instead
