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.

Welcome our 100,000th member! 3D designer community grows 100x in less than 2 years

Welcome our 100,000th member! 3D designer community grows 100x in less than 2 years

Like many other start-ups, CGTrader is an ambition born out of frustration. In 2011, Marius Kalytis, the Founder and CEO of the company, embarked on a journey to create an online platform with just and favorable working conditions for 3D designers in search of a mutually-beneficial partnership. As a 3D artist himself, he knew all too well the aggressive approach of the majority of existing platforms that paid little or no thought to fair royalty system, robbing their users of most of their earnings. Seeing no other solution, Marius started his own business, granting exceptionally generous royalties to 3D artists and vowing to democratize the 3D modeling market. Today CGTrader is ecstatic to welcome the 100,000th member to its family. So, how did that happen so quickly?
