Make it easier to bring in 3D models

Make it as easy as SketchFab to export models from multiple sources into PlayCanvas, or cooperate with them, make an sketchfab intergration or plugin or addon. Their exporter makes it easy to export models.

If SketchFab can export into FBX (one of the most popular model exchange formats), then you simply drag’n’drop it into Editor assets panel.

That is pretty easy, and universal, so no need to develop tailored specific exports, limiting to only those tools exporters are available for, and having huge amount of things to maintain.
Although, model format is described here: You are free to make the exporters. Although uploading JSON now won’t identify it as model (need to add that feature).
