If you already have a Streamable Model (e.g. made by using Plugin Usage in Editor method) you can already generate a preview (see Step 2)

Step 2. Add Streamable Model

When this button is clicked, the Extension will download the Script to the root of assets in PlayCanvas, create a new Entity and attach the script to the Entity as a Script Component. After that you need to set the parameters (number 4 in the picture). To see the preview you need just to add the path to your model. But for streaming in PlayMode you are required to set the camera also!

Step 3. Generate Preview.

This button will generate a preview model if you have a ready Entity with attached script and filled path variable. It will generate all Preview Models if you have several of them. It may take a while, because the Models will be streamed to your Engine from the web.
