Wavefront OBJ importer for plot.ly Dash


Hey. This page is more than two years old! The content here is probably outdated, so bear that in mind. If this post is part of a series, there may be a more recent post that supersedes this one.

To cut a long story short*… for those of you that use (1) Python and (2) plot.ly Dash and I’ve written a package to help import OBJ 3D files** into the Dash framework’s 3dmesh graphs. Hopefully useful if you what to show data a little more contextually, or use OBJ file format as the way to encapsulate (architectural) data

* The story of why I threw the towel in on this blog.

** Import OBJ 3D files with a lot of restrictions – see GitHub repo

Docs for its use a little light on the ground, but the package is on PyPi, so you can import using:

 pip install dash-obj-in-3dmesh 

And the Github repo code does work as a Dash app, so if you have problems take a look at this, or contact me.
