Each year we celebrate Sketchfab Day on March 26th, the day that sketchfab.com was founded way back in 2012.
We invite you, our members, to celebrate with us by sharing your favourite uploads and stories about what Sketchfab means to you on your social media streams.
Read on for some tips on how to best present your 3D models.
- Don’t forget to include a link to your Sketchfab profile so people can explore your work and give you a follow.
- Present your 3D model(s) in the best way you can. Tips for video, GIFs and images below.
- Make it personal. Share how Sketchfab has been part of your creative journey or career.
- Get creative. Don’t be afraid to try something weird or wonderful with your post.
Video posts are proven to get more views, likes and reshares on social media—they also get ‘autoplayed’ in most social feeds. Pro Tip: Create a square, rather than landscape, video.
Record your screen
Open up a model in fullscreen, hit record and start exploring your model, showing off its best features.

The next best thing to video is an image, which can be much quicker to capture if you are short on time.
Use our screenshot tool to grab a high-resolution screenshot of any model, up to 4096 x 4096 pixels.
Show more of your work with multiple images or an image grid. We found this online image grid maker easy to use—just upload 9 square images and BOOM, image grid.
Use 3D Embeds
The Sketchfab 3D viewer is supported in Twitter and Facebook feeds. Just paste in the long or short link to your model at the end of your post.
This is great when your priority is for people experience the 3D itself but unfortunately autoplaying Sketchfab embeds is not supported in most social feeds (yet).
