New setting in the publisher: native format
Attention sellers! Have you noticed you could specify the native file format of your models on CGTrader?
A native file format is a file saved in the format of the original software application used to create the file. When you save a file in a non-native format, the application has to translate the data to that new format, and some information can be distorted or omitted in the process. This means that the native format has the most precise information about your model, and customers might prefer to use it over other formats.
You can indicate the Native format in the 3D model publisher, next to the software type.
After you publish the model, the native format will be shown in the product page, like this:
Knowing which file is in the native format helps your customers use 3D models more efficiently and get the best results.
Here are some of the most popular applications and their file formats.
