Addcomponent coding help

Hi Everyone, had a simple question I’ve been stuck on. how can we load a model legacy component with an GLB asset?

tried following this addcomponent to load my model instead of the box

entity.addComponent("render", {

        type: 'box'


thanks in advance


The legacy component which is “model” doesn’t work with glb assets, you have to use the Render component to load it.
Here is an example of loading glb assets and adding a render component at run time to render them

nice. thanks, it works well. also. can I use to add/load the animation legacy ?

Yes, it can work with the animation legacy component, but I would suggest you use the new Anim component, here is an example of loading animations from a glb and running them through the Anim component:

Slight correction: You can use the Model Component with GLB model assets (you have to untick ‘Import Hierarchy in Asset Settings’) and the Model Component works with both the Animation and Anim Component

    var modelAsset ='ambulance.glb', 'model');
    this.entity.addComponent('model', {
        asset: modelAsset,
        type: 'asset'

can I also add an animation with this model? using addcomponent?


var animationAsset =‘walk.glb’, ‘animation’);
this.entity.addComponent(‘animation’, {
asset: animationAsset ,
type: ‘asset’
