Line entities do not export to GLTF/GLB

When I add Line entities to a new scene, they do not show up in the exported GLTF or GLB file (I tried both.) If the line is the only entity in the scene, the resulting GLTF/GLB fails validation using KhronosGroup/glTF-Validator. I am using aspose 20.3.

Here is the code to reproduce:

      var scene = new Scene();
        x1 = 0,
        y1 = 0,
        z1 = 0,
        x2 = 10,
        y2 = 10,
        z2 = 10;
      var line = new Line("LineEntity");
      line.Excluded = false;
      line.Visible = true;
      line.ControlPoints.Add(new Vector4(x1, y1, z1));
      line.ControlPoints.Add(new Vector4(x2, y2, z2));
      line.Segments.Add(new int[] { 0, 1 });
      line.Color = new Vector3(1, 0, 0);
      scene.RootNode.CreateChildNode("LineNode", line);
      var saveOpts = new GLTFSaveOptions(Aspose.ThreeD.FileContentType.ASCII);
      saveOpts.EmbedAssets = true;
      var fmt = saveOpts.FileFormat;
      scene.Save($"TestLine ({x1},{y1},{z1})-({x2},{y2},{z2}).gltf", saveOpts);


Can you please share your generated result along with expected result to further investigate this issue.

Attached is the output of the above code as a GLTF. Expected result is a valid GLTF file which passes validation and displays a single red line from {0,0,0} to {10,10,10}.

TestLine (0,0,0)-(10,10,10).zip (335 Bytes)


Thank you for the details.

I like to inform that Line is not supported in our GLTF exporter. We are working on a more powerful curve implementation, which will have a GLTF support.
