Welcome to Sketchfab 3December 2018! Read this first

The holidays are all about traditions, and this year we’re starting a new one: 3December. It’s an opportunity for you to challenge yourself with a new 3D topic each day for 3 weeks.

Topics will be announced each day from December 3rd to December 23rd, and you will have until January 1 to complete your models. To stay updated on each day’s topic, subscribe to the 3December forum category - instructions are provided below. Every time a new topic is announced, you’ll receive an email.

Categories for the challenge include:

  • Clothing
  • Props
  • Nature
  • Food & Drink
  • Experience
  • Animal
  • Architecture

You’re welcome to use whatever 3D technique and workflow you prefer to create your models. If you complete all 21 of the topics by January 1st, you will be entered into a raffle to win one of three $100 Amazon vouchers, and 3 months of Sketchfab PRO.


  • Use any tool and workflow you like to create your models.
  • The models can be static or animated.
  • Give your models titles and brief (max 50 words) descriptions.
  • Submit only new work.
  • Once you’ve created your models, upload them to Sketchfab, find the tag for that day’s topic and add it to your model.
  • Create your own thread in the 3December Entries forum to share and keep track of your progress.
  • Use the #3December hashtag if you want to share your entries on social media.
  • All 21 submissions must be complete by January 1st in order to be eligible for the raffle drawing (23:59 New York time – EST)

my object, I know, I’m a beginner, but I really enjoy it

Carillon by Elisabetta.Buono on Sketchfab

Do all of the objects need to be singular or can you combine them into a single scene. For example A planet sized fruitcake with a north pole sitting on the snow like icing while Santa is sitting in his winter coat around the wood stove


Single objects please. However, combining them into a single scene later sounds like a great idea :slight_smile:

What about re-using a previous entry in a larger entry, ie re-using an eggnog carton in a Christmas dinner scene?

I don’t think that’s a problem.

I’ve been on vacation, is there any problem with me catching up? I’m reading the rules that as long as all entries are complete by 1st Jan 2019, all is good?

Sorry, I missed your question. Yes, you have until January 1st, good luck!

Thanks everybody for all of your hard work and dedication on this challenge! We hope that you had as much fun creating your entries as we did viewing them.

Now to the winners, drawn at random, and listed here in no particular order:




Thanks again to all who participated, and congratulations to those who completed all 21 topics! We look forward to seeing more of your great work in 2019. :fireworks:
