This deserializer converts 3MF data (OPC archives or XML strings) to JSCAD scripts or geometries.

This deserializer converts only what is supported by JSCAD libraries. Full document conversion of models and materials are NOT supported, so don't even try. However, conversion of 3MF objects and materials are possible:

3MF Entity JSCAD Geometry Notes
object to geom3 conversion of mesh with vertices and triangles
basematerials RGBA colors convertion of materials found on objects and triangles
colorgroups RGBA colors convertion of materials found on objects and triangles

Also, many attributes as found on objects are transferred to the geometry, e.g. id, type, etc.
