Flat is Boring: The Magic of Ideas Becoming Things


When we launched the Flat is Boring campaign, our focus was on broadcasting the big and exciting message - with 3D printing, bringing any idea to life is a matter of creativity rather than anything else. So, initially we had no other intention but to offer the delightful experience of having your creative project idea transformed into a 3D printable model, printed and delivered to your doorstep by our partner Shapeways. The winners (Top 10 ideas) were selected based on the social support that the idea attracted through 'likes' and 'shares' as well as on the feedback from our judge panel. Wait until you see the kick ass designs that were modeled and 3D printed bringing the 10 best submissions to life!

Welcome our 100,000th member! 3D designer community grows 100x in less than 2 years


Like many other start-ups, CGTrader is an ambition born out of frustration. In 2011, Marius Kalytis, the Founder and CEO of the company, embarked on a journey to create an online platform with just and favorable working conditions for 3D designers in search of a mutually-beneficial partnership. As a 3D artist himself, he knew all too well the aggressive approach of the majority of existing platforms that paid little or no thought to fair royalty system, robbing their users of most of their earnings. Seeing no other solution, Marius started his own business, granting exceptionally generous royalties to 3D artists and vowing to democratize the 3D modeling market. Today CGTrader is ecstatic to welcome the 100,000th member to its family. So, how did that happen so quickly?
