How to make your 3D models more visible - key tips to improve your sales

Posted on Dec 20, 2016 by Eduardas Jucys

Everyone here wants to make 3D models that stand out in the crowd. Some of us actually do a magnificent job making them - and that is a good thing. But when it comes to doing a good presentation for your work - the real struggle starts. What kind of description do I write? Why do I need so many tags? What's the big deal with having 3056 pictures uploaded in my model presentation? Let me answer all of these wonderfully confusing questions, to help you on your road to better model visibility.

Infographic: Tapping Into Massive VR Potential In 2016

Some time ago we noted that the demand for low poly 3D models is growing (the trend that continues in the 2nd half of the year), and one of the reasons is likely to be the growing virtual reality (VR) market as the developers of VR applications also need real time assets for their content.
