An FBX file is a 3D model saved in the Autodesk Filmbox format. It contains a model that can be used and shared across a variety of digital modeling and content creation programs. FBX files are often used in game development and animation. FBX files store data about cameras, lights, meshes, NURBS, and the other elements of a 3D scene.
For free JigSpace accounts:
- The .fbx files need to be less than 30MB each, roughly 300,000 triangles.
- Multiple mesh objects can be exported as a single .fbx file. They will stay separated in the workshop.
- Reset transforms on your mesh objects.
Note: Animations from FBX are not yet supported in JigSpace.
Importing your own OBJ file is the same process as importing any other object file.

Blender FBX Export Settings:
- Model dimensions of 8,8,8 blender units are a good average size to view your model in augmented reality.
