Sketchfab Launches Online Store for 3D Models that Allows Full Inspection Before Purchase

Sketchfab recently launched their Sketchfab store out of beta, which allows creative professionals and hobbyists to sell and purchase 3D models for web, mobile, AR and VR online. 

If you’re on the creation/selling side, this means you finally have the chance to monetize your work. On the other end, buyers now have the ability to make confident 3D model purchases with Sketchfab’s “Model Inspector,” which allows customers to view every aspect of a 3D model, including textures and topology, in real-time before purchase. The Sketchfab viewer also supports VR and AR, which could be useful if you’re planning on using your models in a virtual environment.

Before the launch of the store, Sketchfab’s community published around 3 million 3D models to the platform since it began in 2012. An online store where 3D content creators can fully inspect 3D models, purchase them directly from their designer and seamlessly integrate them into their work without additional attribution seems like a valid next step for the company. If you’re in need of 3D models or want to monetize your own creations, maybe Sketchfab’s new store will work for you.
