[HELP] 3D model completely disappears when the camera gets close ()

My 3D model completely disappears when the camera gets close.

  • When importing my model with GLFT I had a problem where my 3D model ends up disappearing from the scene.

Example: https://viniciusfxavier.github.io/threejs/learning-2/dist/index.html
Source Code: https://github.com/ViniciusFXavier/threejs/blob/14eb9a0ae33b405bea242973bac0b53a90f749b6/learning-2/src/index.ts

const loader = new GLTFLoader().setPath('https://viniciusfxavier.github.io/threejs/learning-2/src/models/');
  loader.load('character-dummy.gltf', (gltf) => {
    const model = gltf.scene;

    const helper = new THREE.SkeletonHelper( model );
    helper.visible = true;


Camera settings:

camera = new THREE.PerspectiveCamera(45, window.innerWidth / window.innerHeight, 1, 10000);
camera.position.set(5, 5, 0);

On scroll OUT:


You may want to disable .frustumCulled on each object in the model (loop over them using .traverse). SkinnedMesh gets culled without accounting for the effect of the bones, sometimes that can have odd effects.


Hello @donmccurdy thank you very much for responding,
I’ll try to do.

@donmccurdy Thank you so much, you helped too much = D

The code below works:

gltf.scene.traverse((child) => {
      if ( child.type == 'SkinnedMesh' ) {
        child.frustumCulled = false;
