I have a file foo.obj that is located in an arbitrary directory in the file system (/tmp/foo.obj)
I found out that the file needs to be in or below the server.document-root dir (where index.html is) .
If I’m trying to load from the directory /tmp/ I get an error message:
> three.js:31803 GET http://localhost/tmp/foo.obj 404 (Not Found)
If I move the file into the root directory of my web server (e.g. /var/www/html) the file loads ok.
If the .obj file is within a zip file, I can load the zip file (via a ZipLoader package, that uses the File API) from anywhere in the file system, e.g. /tmp/foo.zip, and extract foo.obj from the zip file.
Can I load the .obj file from anywhere in the file system, using the File API similar to how I load the zip file?
