    There are open source tools like assimp for runtime importing.

    TriLib is a paid asset that is a unity wrapper for assimp and supports imports from urls.

    I've written an importer for glTF files that a lot of people use to import from Sketchfab.

    thanks for the suggestions
    the plugin looks amazing! but is it possible to import in realtime from Sketchfab? while Sketchfab needs Log in to give a link to fine, and as well the links are to a Zip file with many other login information in it.

    The same problem in TriLib Here,
    do I need to somehow get the models downloaded, then load them? [no realtime possibility in sending a request and get the model?]

    I've never loaded models from Sketchfab myself so i'm not really sure. I'm guessing you have to find an API for sketchfab, and then use an additional library to unzip the file after download, and then pass the file into the loader.
