Babylon.js Materials Library

For usage documentation please visit and choose “materials library”.

Installation instructions


Compiled js files (minified and source) are offered on our public CDN here:


To install using npm :

npm install --save babylonjs babylonjs-materials

If using TypeScript, the typing needs to be added to tsconfig.json:

    "types": [

Afterwards it can be imported to the project using:

import * as BABYLON from 'babylonjs';
import 'babylonjs-materials';

This will extend Babylon’s namespace with the materials available:

// Some awesome code
let skyMaterial = new BABYLON.SkyMaterial("skyMaterial", scene);
skyMaterial.backFaceCulling = false;
// Some more awesome code

Using webpack to package your project will use the minified js file.
