To customize a threebox layer for use with react-map-gl, the following steps can be taken:

  1. Install and import the @react-map-gl/three package, which provides components for using three.js with react-map-gl.

  2. Create a new Threebox object, passing in the map instance and the container element where the layer will be rendered.

const tb = new Threebox(map, map.getCanvasContainer());
  1. Create a new ThreeboxLayer object, passing in the Threebox instance, the ID for the layer, and an onClick callback function if desired.
const layer = new ThreeboxLayer(tb, 'my-layer-id', onClickFunction);
  1. Add the ThreeboxLayer object to the Mapbox GL map instance using the addLayer() method.
  1. Customize the ThreeboxLayer by setting its properties and adding objects to it. For example, to add a 3D model, create a new ThreeboxObject and add it to the layer:
const modelUrl = 'path/to/my/model.glb';
const model = new ThreeboxObject(new GLTFLoader().load(modelUrl))
  1. Finally, update the ThreeboxLayer on each frame using the update() method.
map.on('render', () => {

By following these steps, a ThreeboxLayer can be fully customized for use with react-map-gl, allowing for the creation of interactive 3D maps.
