CGTrader Goes eBay

There are several ways to go about implementing a vision. We have ours. For the last 4 months we had a single goal. It got us so addicted to what we do that it made our office our second home. It resulted in bottomless cups of coffee and tea, sleepless nights for the programmers, loads of stress and code combinations, dozens of chocolate bars and a serious headache on how to make a dream come true.

Today we are proudly announcing the grand launch of the improved CGTrader platform! This product is built from scratch by our talented team - which gives us freedom to easily add extra features and improvements in the future. We are excited to tell that our vision is now closer than ever before.

CGShape Uploads 170+ 3D Models

In the last few days we witnessed one of the most numerous upload since the launch. The authors from CGShape uploaded more than 170 3D models without any help from us.

This means two things:

  • gets more and more trust from widely acknowledged 3D authors;
  • we succeded to improve uploading and portfolio managment operations so that even huge number of 3D models is not a limitation to join

CGShape’s models are very high quality. We’re sure medical industry will use their detailed models of organs, video game industry will use sports inventory and sportsmen as assets for computer and video games. Please see the list of newly uploaded 3D models to check if there are some you’re looking for.

Don'’t forget that if you buy any 3D model at, the author will get full amount of your payment (as there’re no commissions here!).

It will be very interesting to see how such well known CG community member as CGShape will benefit from Meanwhile we continuously improve usability and operations to decrease the time necessary to upload hundreds of 3D models.
