With more than 200,000 models and counting, it’s easy to see why a lot of designers and engineers are using Sketchfab to publish, share and embed interactive 3D models. Aiming to do what YouTube has done for video makers, or what SoundCloud has done for musicians, Sketchfab wants to bring interactive 3D content to as many people as easily as possible.
With the ability to upload in almost any 3D format (they currently support 28), it’s easy to share directly from your 3D content creation program of choice using a Sketchfab exporter or simply share directly via your browser to sketchfab.com. Once your model is uploaded to Sketchfab it can be shared on multiple content-sharing platforms including LinkedIn, Kickstarter, Facebook, Bēhance, WordPress, Tumblr and more.
While anybody can sign up and start sharing their models for free, the $10/month PRO account brings a lot more flexibilities to file size, sharing options and upload count.
Here we’ve rounded up 5 of the best models this week on Sketchfab. Will yours be in our mix next week?
We started Sketchfab in Paris, France, in early 2012. We were frustrated to see so many artists spending hours on making great 3D models, but ending up sharing dull screenshots as there was no better solution to showcase their work… WebGL, the first open standard to display 3D graphics in a browser, had recently been released, so it was the perfect timing to start building the best platform to share 3D designs. Our community quickly grow to where we are now, a fruitful mix of artists, designers, architects, engineers, brands, museums, schools and more. Welcome aboard!
