"We’re both proud that Sketchfab has become the home of 3D on the internet and excited to keep pushing the boundaries with new features and updates"
NEW YORK (PRWEB) February 10, 2020
Sketchfab was founded almost 8 years ago on the idea that both the creation and consumption of 3D content will become an ever-increasing part of our digital lives. Reaching the 3,000,000 community members milestone is a huge validation of this assumption. With still a relatively small team of 30 people, this milestone has the added satisfaction of there now being 100,000 community members for each member of the Sketchfab team. Since reaching 2 million users in November 2018, Sketchfab has seen the growth of new subcommunities:
With over 300,000 free 3D models, community members are increasingly joining Sketchfab to source Creative Commons licensed content for their own projects, ‘remixing’ it and building upon other artist’s work. As the best 3D repository on the web, it’s easy to import Sketchfab models into other creative software.
Since the launch of the Sketchfab Store, thousands of community members have also started turning their passion for creation into revenue. Thanks to Sketchfab’s 3D viewer and model inspector, buyers can experience 3D models at their best and have full confidence in their purchases.
Finally, another growing community group is web developers, who build experiences and applications on top of Sketchfab using its ‘Viewer API’. Some great examples of their work showcase the power of 3D in online shopping and interactive news.
“We’re both proud that Sketchfab has become the home of 3D on the internet and excited to keep pushing the boundaries with new features and updates in the future,” said Alban Denoyel, Co-founder and CEO of Sketchfab. “A huge thank you to every single member of our community for helping us reach this historic milestone—here’s to the next million!”
