A simple parser for .OBJ mesh files.


var fs = require("fs")
var parseOBJ = require("parse-obj")

parseOBJ(fs.createReadStream("mesh.obj"), function(err, result) {
  if(err) {
    throw new Error("Error parsing OBJ file: " + err)
  console.log("Got mesh: ", result)

require("parse-obj")(stream, cb(err, result))

Parses a read stream into a .OBJ format mesh

  • stream is a read stream
  • cb is a callback that gets executed once the stream is parsed. The result object is a structure with the following data:

    • vertexPositions an array of vertex position data
    • vertexNormals an array of vertex normal data
    • vertexUVs an array of vertex UV coordinates
    • facePositions an array of indices for face positions
    • faceNormals an array of indices for face normals
    • faceUVs an array of indices for face texture coordinates
