This time the community-based marketplace focused on professional designers who work in architecture. It was the first architectural challenge on CGTrader - 3D Architecture Challenge. There were two categories, so 3D artists could choose what to create - a design of interior or exterior.
Designers had more than enough motivation. Winners of best exterior and interior categories will get professional software - V-Ray licence from Chaos Group. They will get a large stack of other useful prizes for designing architectural 3D models, including SpaceMouse from 3Dconnexion. The aggregate worth of prizes is $23,000. Therefore, they presented their skills with marvelous models.
“CGTrader wanted to challenge 3D modelers working in the field of architecture. We were certain that designers will come up with some brilliant ideas and they proved that we were right. We are really glad that our desire to bring more realistic themes to computer graphics was fulfilled,” says Marius Kalytis, CEO of CGTrader.
