A React Native view for displaying 3D models

react-native-3d-model-view

A React Native view for displaying .obj, .dae and .scn models either on screen or in AR (iOS devices with A9 or later processors only).

Getting started

$ yarn add react-native-3d-model-view

and then

$ react-native link react-native-3d-model-view

The lib also have peer dependencies of react-native-zip-archive, react-native-fetch-blob and react-native-fs. Make sure that you yarn add and react-native link them to.

Usage

Model view

import ModelView from 'react-native-3d-model-view'

<ModelView
  source={{ zip: 'https://github.com/BonnierNews/react-native-3d-model-view/blob/master/example/obj/Hamburger.zip?raw=true' }}
  onLoadModelStart={this.onLoadModelStart}
  onLoadModelSuccess={this.onLoadModelSuccess}
  onLoadModelError={this.onLoadModelError} />

AR Model view

import ARModelView, { ModelTypes } from 'react-native-3d-model-view'

<ARModelView
  source={{ zip: 'https://github.com/BonnierNews/react-native-3d-model-view/blob/master/example/obj/Hamburger.zip?raw=true' }}
  onLoadModelStart={this.onLoadModelStart}
  onLoadModelSuccess={this.onLoadModelSuccess}
  onLoadModelError={this.onLoadModelError}
  onStart={this.onStart}
  onSurfaceFound={this.onSurfaceFound}
  onSurfaceLost={this.onSurfaceLost}
  onSessionInterupted={this.onSessionInterupted}
  onSessionInteruptedEnded={this.onSessionInteruptedEnded}
  onPlaceObjectSuccess={this.onPlaceObjectSuccess}
  onPlaceObjectError={this.onPlaceObjectError}
  onTrackingQualityInfo={this.onTrackingQualityInfo} />

Source

The source prop on both ModelView and ARView can either be a url to a server (e.g. http://example.com/yourmodel.obj) or a local path (use require). The source object can either consist of a zip prop or a model and a texture prop. Examples:

source={{
  zip: 'https://github.com/BonnierNews/react-native-3d-model-view/blob/master/example/obj/Hamburger.zip?raw=true'
}}

or

source={{
  zip: require('../obj/Hamburger.zip')
}}

or

source={{
  model: 'https://github.com/BonnierNews/react-native-3d-model-view/blob/master/example/obj/Hamburger.obj?raw=true',
  texture: 'https://github.com/BonnierNews/react-native-3d-model-view/blob/master/example/obj/Hamburger.png?raw=true'
}}

or

source={{
  model: require('../obj/Hamburger.obj'),
  texture: require('../obj/Hamburger.png')
}}

The lib will assume that the unzipped folder result will have the same name as the .zip (e.g. Hamburger.zip => Hamburger). This might not always be the case, then you can set the name of the unzipped folder:

source={{
  zip: 'https://github.com/BonnierNews/react-native-3d-model-view/blob/master/example/obj/Archive.zip?raw=true',
  unzippedFolderName: 'Hamburger'
}}

NOTE: File types

WaveFront (.obj) and Collada (.dae) is supported on both Android and iOS. SceneKit (.scn) is supported on iOS. Collada models with animations is autoplayed.

NOTE: Using require

To require .obj, .dae, .scn or .zip files you need to add a rn-cli.config.js to the root of your project with minimum this config:

module.exports = {
  getAssetExts: () => [ 'obj', 'dae', 'scn', 'zip' ]
}

See more in the example project.

NOTE: SceneKit compressed scenes

SceneKit and Collade files needs to be "SceneKit compressed scenes" on iOS. Compress with this shell command

$ /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/scntool --convert InFile.dae --format c3d --output OutFile.dae --force-y-up --force-interleaved --look-for-pvrtc-image

Components

ModelView

View for displaying .obj, .dae or .scn (iOS only) on screen with SceneKit or OpenGL.

Props

Prop Type Default Note
source object null Can either consist of a zip prop or a model and a texture prop. All three can either be a url string ("http://...") or you can use require to reference a local path. The .zip archive should contain both the object and the texture. Can also contain unzippedFolderName for setting the unzipped folder name (see more above).
scale number 1 Scale of the model.
autoPlay boolean true Should animated models play on mount.

Events

Event Name Returns Notes
onLoadModelStart null Loading model has started.
onLoadModelSuccess null Loading model has succeeded.
onLoadModelError Error Failed loading model.
onAnimationStart null Animated model has started animating.
onAnimationStop null Animated model has stopped animating.
onAnimationUpdate event Animated model animation update. Get progress from event.nativeEvent.progress

Methods

Use ref={modelView => {this.modelView = modelView}} to be able to call the methods listed below.

Method Name Returns Notes
startAnimation null Start playing animated model.
stopAnimation null Stops playing animated model.
setProgress(float) null Set animation progress of animated model (allowed values: 0-1).

ARModelView

View for displaying .obj, .dae or .scn in augmented reality (iOS devices with A9 or later processors only).

Props

Prop Type Default Note
source object null Can either consist of a zip prop or a model and a texture prop. All three can either be a url string ("http://...") or you can use require to reference a local path. The .zip archive should contain both the object and the texture. Can also contain unzippedFolderName for setting the unzipped folder name (see more above).
scale number 1 Scale of the model.
autoPlay boolean true Should animated models play on mount.
miniature boolean false Shows the model in a miniature mode.
miniatureScale float 0.2 The scale of the model in miniature mode.

stopAnimation null Stops playing animated model.
setProgress(float) null Set animation progress of animated model (allowed values: 0-1).
restart null Restarts the ARKit session.
getSnapshot(boolean) Promise Save a print screen of the current AR session. Boolean determines if the image should be saved to the Photo Library of the device. The promise return the url of the saved image.
