Support Ukraine With A 3D Printable Badge

Support Ukraine With A 3D Printable Badge

21 November 2013 was the day when the world heard about the political conflict in Ukraine. It was the day when the public protests demanding closer European integration began. Thousands of people went to the streets and settled there with demands for resignation or President Viktor Yanukovich and the government.

Almost 3 months have passed and people are still there - in the streets of Kiev and other cities of Ukraine. Protesters had been violently dispersed, a lot of civilians have been arrested. Those facts dragged the attention of the world. Now, when 3 months passed, brutality and violence become parts of the conflift. More than 25 people are dead, thousands have been injured in the street battles between the protesters and the police.

A lot of people have declared their support to the protesters. As you know, democracy and liberality have always been valued on CGTrader. Therefore, we invited our members to help us find a way to express the solidarity with Ukrainian protesters. There is probably no better way for us to do that than to make 3D printable supporting badges. Just take it and 3D print it. Don't forget to tell your friend to do the same.

731 Days of Dream Catching

This morning has started with a cup of coffee and a huge piece of sweet cake in the office. Smells like a birthday. And it definitely is.

Today CGTrader has a two year birthday anniversary. It means that 731 days have already passed by catching a dream and making it real. No, this Friday is not a day-off for us. All together we go further.

This is the reason why I would like to thank for each member of our small team publicly. It is fascinating that all of them are the best in a particular spheres. So, all the time they are making the best of it. Of course, everyone has black days, but there are bright ones afterwards.

I am in love with CGTrader, because I became passionate while observing colleagues. There are no working hours, no pressure in our office. There is always chocolate on a table. And we definitely need a bed for the next birthday. It is obvious that we will start sleeping here quite soon.

No, I am not trying to force you to read the Ode for our office. I am just using an opportunity properly. According to this, we all would like to thank to each of you. I guess, there is no need to say that without you, we are nothing. 3D model marketplace could never exist without a strong and close-knit community of 3D designers. As well as it would be impossible to develop CGTrader with no support of those, who are in high demand of 3D models. We have our computer graphics' society growing everyday. And we could not ask for a better present.

Moreover, I would like to announce that today in a few hours is the deadline for the 3D Model Competition. It is being held as a birthday party lasting the whole month. To sum up, we have received an enormous amount of professional 3D models varying in categories and styles. It will be extraordinarily difficult to decide which ones of them are the best. Furthermore, it just proves a fact that each of you are an important part in bringing our dream into life. A dream to create a different, author-friendly and a fair marketplace for all of us.

Instead of toasting, we would like to share with you some interesting facts from the life of CGTrader. The very first visitor came to our marketplace on 8th of March. It was exactly two years ago. And then it has started. Endless checking of Google Analytics and looking to the curves of flow. Unfortunately, they have a tendency to go down after they suddenly strike. Two months after we reached a number of a thousand visitors a day.

U.S.A. definitely is the first one on the top of countries by visitors. There is billion-strong India and then United Kingdom afterwards.

It is common to remember some particular moments, while celebrating a birthday. Yes, yes to thank everyone, to highlight any interesting stories of a year, to hug a lot, to smile a lot and then cry a heart out. Accidentally, we realised that none of us remembers what was the first 3D model to be uploaded on a marketplace. Now we know. It is a 3D model of a residential house for $10. An object was made by Marius, who is the right hand of CGTrader. It has never been bought, by the way.
