Categorizing models


(My3dscanner) #1

I have a problem viewing new models at Sketchfab. The choice is either Popular, Downloadable, or Editor's pick, etc in a drop-out menu under "Explore", but I just want to see what are the new models out there.
I am aware of the "Order by most recent" button on the right, but the categories limit my search. Why don't you have a simple catergory "View all"? I personally need it. So I simply click category "All models" and filter them by "Most recent".
Andy why do you have a "Polygons" filter? Who would ever use it? Who cares about polygon number?

You can always go to https://sketchfab.com/models . Read this topic: http://forum.sketchfab.com/t/all-models-missing-in-explore-menu/2671 . Your questions about the polygons filter are interesting !

Thanks, but you are not answering my question. The advice " You can always go to sketchfab.com/models" does work, but it is not an easy find unless you search . What is the problem of adding "All Models" category?

We don't expose /models explicitly because it is often not a very nice browsing experience.

1) It could be completely full of one user's bulk uploads that aren't interesting
2) There could be some delay in thumbnail generation. Looking at a gallery of empty thumbnails isn't nice either.

Polygon filtering: why not? I use it when I'm interested in low-poly models.

I agree that Sketchfab could use more catagorising features.

Though what I'd like to see more of is more options for catagorisation in user profiles. I can put my models into a folder. but in that folder there is no way of organising anything. Sorting by name for example would be nice. And maybe as creator of a folder putting a default sorting method on it.
