Architects and designers have long struggled with how best to share 3D models in various file sizes and formats. They are often too big to email, and there’s no telling if the recipient has the same modeling software to view the file. A new cloud web application, Sketchfab, hopes to remedy all of these issues. Sketchfab supports 27 native 3D formats, requires no additional plugins, and allows users to upload files directly to the site for interactive viewing and sharing.
Sketchfab says, “The world around us is in 3D, but the web is still in 2D, and we want to change that. We think your 3D models deserve something better than screenshots or “showreel” videos. That’s why we created Sketchfab. We understand 3D and bring it to the web.”
Web-based technology for sharing project documents…we’re a fan.
