##About UltimateLoader is a tool that helps you load 3D assets and 2D images in a simple and consistent way. You don't have to worry about messing with the different loaders and confusing code. Just provide the path to the asset and UltimateLoader will take care of the rest.

Accepted File types

Currently accepted object file types:

  • .obj
  • .json
  • .dae
  • .gltf

Currently accepted image file types:

  • .jpeg / .jpg
  • .png

IMPORTANT: Your objects aren't guaranteed to load correctly. Some models may not have been converted correctly or weren't setup right.

IMPORTANT: Your .mtl files must be named that same as the object file and placed in the same directory.


bool UltimateLoader.useQueue
If true, the objects will load incrementally. Default is false.

WARNING: Loading time is drastically increased if queue is used. This is for special cases when you really need to load the objects incrementally.

bool UltimateLoader.loadImagesOnPlane
If true, images will load onto a plane. Default is false.

int UltimateLoader.imageSize
The initial size of the image when loading onto a plane. Default is 32.

Note: The imageSize is used when creating a THREE.PlaneGeometry. If loadImagesOnPlane is false, imageSize is ignored. The image's aspect ratio will be maintained.

Using UltimateLoader

There are two methods you can use to load objects:

  • UltimateLoader.load(path, callback);
  • UltimateLoader.multiload(arrayOfPaths, callback);

Each method functions the same except that multiloader will return an array of references to all the loaded objects in order of urls provided.

UltimateLoader.load(path, callback);

UltimateLoader.load('path/to/model', function(object)
  // Do work...
  //Example work
  object.position.set(x, y, z);
  // Do more work...

UltimateLoader.multiload(arrayOfPaths, callback);

var objectUrls =

var loadedObjects = [];

UltimateLoader.multiload(objectUrls, function(objects)
  for (var i = 0; i < objects.length; i++)
  	loadedObjects[i] = objects[i];

Alternative callback method

Great for keeping things clear.

function onLoad(object)
     //do work

UltimateLoader.load('path/to/model', onLoad);
function onLoad(objects)
     //do work

UltimateLoader.multiload(models, onLoad);
