Hi all! I couldn't find any topic for an introduction page so let me get the ball rolling! :smile:
I am Theng Yeong , currently studying Digital Game Art in Singapore!
This is my profile: https://sketchfab.com/cilegna
I'd love to hear about the members of sketchfab! Be it local or international.
Meanwhile, any criticism or opinions would be greatly appreciated, I've got a lot to learn! :smile:
thanks

Hey Theng! Thanks for your introduction. Creating such a thread was on my todo list, it's awesome to see someone beat me to it :smile:

I'm Sketchfab's head of community. I work remotely from the Netherlands but meet the teams in Paris and New York a few times a year. I used to run the community for Shapeways and I'm the founder of a Blender news site called BlenderNation.

Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time to do 3D modeling nowadays, but I'm really enjoying 3D scanning. Check out some of my work on my profile (a tutorial is coming soon!).

Cheers!

Hi guys,

We are recently new on sketchfab. We uploaded a few models and even managed to get featured among the staffpicked models. Feel free to check out our models and give us some feedback.

Cheers!

Greetings,

We were just introduced to this site, So far, very good.

We model in AutoCAD 3DFACEs ( very old software ). It looks like sketchfab handles .3ds format well and that is an easy conversion in autocad.

We've been looking for a replacement of AutoDESK's Design Rreview for a while now. Any chance of adding some markup tools here ? Or are they already there and I have found them yet ?

Thanks! -David

Hello! My name is Marianne, and I'm a new artist on Sketchfab. I first found out about this website, though looking at Glenatron's Resident Luigi amazing model on Dorkly.com. It wasn't long until I got inspired to make my account and think, "I'd like to give this kind of thing a try. This website is really cool!"

I've done art in other forms (sketching, abstract computer art, and photography to name a few), and I've started getting into making my own 3D models. So far, it's been really interesting to just experiment with the SketchUp Make software I found--as well as trying things out on Smoothie-3D.com. I have one project in progress going on in each. It's likely that I might have one of them done sooner than the other for next week! I share my art on my Twitter page, and my own website.

I've enjoyed looking around at various other models on Sketchfab. A lot of you have so much talent! You put in so much effort, time, and thought into what you do. :grin: What I've seen inspires and motivates me to keep developing my new skill.
