How to load GLTF model at specified position?

Hi! I am trying to load a GLTF model at my scene’s origin, but it seems like I have no control over where the GLTF model is loaded. The model loads fine it’s just way out in space. Here is how I am initializing my scene. I try forcing the mesh position to (0,0,0) and it has no effect.

Here is a screenshot of the problem. I want to load the GLTF model on the ground plane, but it is very far away.

Thanks for any help!

first, I think you should check the original gltf file origin. check your files origin is 0,0,0

second, console log scene. then you can get the hint. check your model parent, and child etc :slight_smile:

Thanks for you answer! I checked the original gltf file (I downloaded from sketchfab) and edited the matrix as shown. It didn’t fix the issue. I am new to gilt, so if I’m sorry if I’m missing something obvious.

This is how I did it.

Thanks for the help! I ended up editing the model in blender to be centered with the origin. Now it works!
