The ceremony of Academy Awards passed, but, once again, Leonardo DiCaprio did not get an Oscar. The only thing he got was a huge amount of memes related to his frustrating experience of becoming a runner-up in the category of Best Actor. A lot of his fans got disappointed as it was expected that this year will be the time for Leo to be awarded after four times being nominated.
CGTrader team decided: if Leo does not get an Oscar, then Oscar obviously should get Leo. A 3D printed one. Our designers' community come up with the ideas for Oscar figurines to reflect Leo and his performance in the movie "Wolf of Wall Street". We have picked the best figurines and we want to share it with you!

Architecture is the art and science of designing buildings. Nonbuilding structures are considered as architecture as well. You probably know that, right? Since the very beginning of the professional architecture a lot of magnificent projects were fulfilled. It always amazes to see a structure which could be called a masterpiece. To see the astonishing structures by themselves – this is one of the reasons why tourists travel around the world and take thousands of pictures of churches, palaces or skyscrapers.
This is where all the fun begins. It is way more different to have a picture in front of your eyes than it is to look at a building itself. Have you ever though for yourself – does everything that you can see in a picture really exist? Of course, you did – nobody can be sure about what they see in this age when almost everything could be edited with Photoshop or any other software for image editing.
Well, hold yourselves – we have some architectural views which you will hardly believe to be not real. These are some of the most photorealistic architectural 3D renderings on the planet. Fasten your seatbelts, open your eyes and let’s take a ride through this digital and artificial reality!

21 November 2013 was the day when the world heard about the political conflict in Ukraine. It was the day when the public protests demanding closer European integration began. Thousands of people went to the streets and settled there with demands for resignation or President Viktor Yanukovich and the government.
Almost 3 months have passed and people are still there - in the streets of Kiev and other cities of Ukraine. Protesters had been violently dispersed, a lot of civilians have been arrested. Those facts dragged the attention of the world. Now, when 3 months passed, brutality and violence become parts of the conflift. More than 25 people are dead, thousands have been injured in the street battles between the protesters and the police.
A lot of people have declared their support to the protesters. As you know, democracy and liberality have always been valued on CGTrader. Therefore, we invited our members to help us find a way to express the solidarity with Ukrainian protesters. There is probably no better way for us to do that than to make 3D printable supporting badges. Just take it and 3D print it. Don't forget to tell your friend to do the same.
