The new 3D Jobs system will change the way businesses connect with 3D designers

3D jobs is something we’ve been dabbling with for a while now, so it’s not necessarily the what that will pump your heart with anticipation. It’s the how. Or so we hope.

What we’ve learned poking around this professional field is that it houses a lot of unhappy people.

3D designers often find themselves immersed in pointless bidding wars that squeeze them dry of energy and scarcely ever bring any money. Private companies, on the other hand, spend hours&hours of their time just hopping from one freelancers platform to another, posting project briefs and hoping to find someone who knows what they’re doing. If it sounds horrible, it’s because it is.

So we have revamped our 3D jobs system to end this misery and bring order from chaos. Add our excellent customer support and this may look too good to be true.

But let’s walk through the changes and new features together, to make sure you get the most out of it. Missing out would not be fun.

CGTrader's Community Rating System receives the oh-so-anticipated upgrade and it's awesome

When we first introduced the Community Rating system, we didn’t really know what to expect. It seemed fair to include our community members, who are industry sharks themselves, into the process of selecting and promoting top-class 3D models. No one else knows this stuff better than you do.

We glad it worked, and you enjoyed the game-based peer review. Now it’s time to introduce a couple of much-anticipated improvements that will further exhilarate the experience. It’s basically “rate your mate if he’s done great” type of business. And it’s more fun than you can ever bear to admit.

How 3D scan-to-print technology will finally make 3D printing happen

How 3D scan-to-print technology will finally make 3D printing happen

3D printing has started to lose its magical glow. It’s becoming mainstream. You don’t get that many wide-eyed, shut-up-and-take-my-money looks simply by talking about 3D-printed cars, or guns, or cupcakes anymore. Old news. But don’t get me wrong, we think it’s good news, too.

It’s time 3D printing moved passed the cool stuff and became unquestionably useful in everyday life. And given the recent avalanche of 3D scan-to-print technology announcements, this seems to be rapidly taking shape.
