3D design heaven: TOP countries and designers rocking CGTrader in 2016

We often talk about globalisation, but there is likely no other industry that is so united and global as computer graphics. With technical knowledge accessible online and the digital nature of 3D artwork, there is no surprise that any creative person in any corner of the world can get recognized and rise to the stars. At the same time, there are traditions and strong designer communities demonstrating consistent development over the years.

This year has been quite eventful for the 3D artist. From creative models for games to models being designed for augmented reality, the market has expanded exponentially. The most recent data from CGTrader unveils that 3D designers came from 128 countries to CGTrader in 2016. On the other end - customers purchasing 3D assets represented 113 countries in 2016. This is not the whole world, but CGTrader team will definitely try to get Vatican City engaged in 2017. And before that, let’s look at what countries were the most active last year... and by the most active we mean uploaded the most models to CGTrader.

In 2016, Ukrainian designers were leading the rank on CGTrader closely followed by 3D modelers from Russia. Ukraine and Russia has always been known for strong CG and game developers communities with a number of annual CG events taking place (there is even kind of a brand “CG Event” with its great low poly chilli-pepper as a logo and series of events across countries). There were also a number of US designers joining and contributing to the platform, which has long tradition, HUGE and well integrated CG market.

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. There is a huge hype surrounding discussions on virtual reality future, but there are also critics pointing to some really valid points. At CGTrader, we always favour objective opinions, so we decided to take a better look at what all of this noise is about and give our view on how it will develop.
