How to use the GLTL models inside arcgis

Hey all,

I'm now using ArcGIS to build a 3D map, I downloaded the gltl model from the web and injected it inside the project.

Then I want to use this model as the symbol, I checked the API that in Mesh has the method called 'createFromGLTF', then I tried to load the gltl model into the mesh and then draw it on the map, but it doesn't work.

Can you help me to check what's the problem? or how to use the mesh component? The document is not too clear about that.

The model I used is here:

          new Point({
            x: 58.226,
            y: 28.271,
        ).then(mesh => {
          let graphic = new Graphic({
            geometry: mesh,
            symbol: {
              type: 'mesh-3d',
              symbolLayers: [{ type: 'fill' }],

I think you should start with external renderer like this example Use three.js from an external renderer | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.13

You can also take a look at this sample that shows how to add glTF models to a 3D SceneView:

Check this page for more information about visualizing points with 3D symbols:
Visualizing points with 3D symbols | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.13 
It includes also more information about the glTF format.

And ObjectSymbol3DLayer - resource where to set the link to the glTF.
