Can we post the models during different days? For example, if I donā€™t have any idea for the ring, can I upload it tomorrow? Or during next days?

Update: Prizes increased from 3 months of Sketchfab Pro to 1 year of Sketchfab Pro

Yep, you can upload whenever you want. Weā€™ll post daily reminders to motivate people and get them going, but you can work on them in any order you want.

Iā€™m interested. @bartv Do we get view-only credits to enter this?

Unfortunately, we donā€™t have the technology ready to do this at a large scale yet. For this challenge, please make your entries downloadable. For future challenges we hope to be able to award credits automatically when you enter.

Is it ok to upload all of the models in the same scene? I would line up them all and add a text. I just dont want to spam my front page with loads of black and white models

Interesting idea! I have no objection - but please label the entries in your scene and do add all the right tags to your model.

We have adjusted the challenge rules:

  • make your models downloadable

now is:

  • make your models downloadable if you donā€™t have enough upload credits

Bummer, I guess I wonā€™t be participating if it has to be downloadable. I hope the sketchfab team can allow challenges to have extra credit and not have to be downloadable soon, that would be awesome for sure.

I just changed the rules so the models donā€™t have to be downloadable. We canā€™t award credits yet, but weā€™re looking for a way to do that for other challenges.
