Cant import the GLTFLoader

I’m trying to import the GLTFLoader.
Unfortunately I can’t find an addon folder at all as stated in the documentation.
even though it is suggested in the path.
I was able to find the file in /node_modules/three/examples/jsm/loaders/GLTFLoader.js but even then I get an error.

You have to use a CDN in order to get the package from the net, in your case you can do this:

import * as THREE from ''
import { GLTFLoader } from ''

Ok, I wrote the cdn in the head area of ​​my html document and now it seems to work. but why do I have to do that if I used npm?

Hmm, if you are using npm then the problem is not with the code but how you are importing it. If you are using npm then its:

import * as THREE from 'three'
import { GLTFLoader } from 'three/examples/jsm/libs/loaders/GLTFLoader.js

I don’t understand, the documentation says this path:

import { GLTFLoader } from 'three/addons/loaders/GLTFLoader.js';

I find the file in this path:

import { GLTFLoader } from '/node_modules/three/examples/jsm/loaders/GLTFLoader.js';

now you say this path:

import { GLTFLoader } from 'three/examples/jsm/libs/loaders/GLTFLoader.js

but I don’t have a folder in libs with the name loaders

The previous update of three.js contains their path in the addons folder, however the in the newer update thats been changes to examples/jsm. Another thing is that when you are importing a package you don’t need to mention node_modules folder in the path, thats because package.json already declares that path for you so when importing directly mention the folder through which you want the import from.

The addons path is an alias that points imports from three/addons/* to three/examples/jsm/*. Most build systems support aliases, and that’s what the three.js examples mostly use, but if your project does not allow aliases for whatever reason, it’s fine to use three/examples/jsm instead.

I would recommend never putting node_modules in an import path though. Use the package name (three/*) and let your build system locate the file on disk.
