NONECG Shares 80 3D Models and Invites To Visit NYC in 3D

  • If you look at the 3D model of New York City shared by NONECG, don't believe your eyes. I'm just back from NYC and can point 5 things that are missing:
  • yellow cabs
  • hod dog vendors
  • people
  • people
  • people

This is why we love CG: it allows us to build our own exclusive world and show it to others!

If we miss something in NY, we just add it, right? For us, 3D artists, it is not necessary even to climb to the Empire State Building to do that.

Google Plus: A Feature To Promote Your Products 1

What is Google's +1 about? Google explains it this way:

Click +1 to publicly give something your stamp of approval. Your +1's can help friends, contacts, and others on the web find the best stuff when they search.

So what does this really mean to 3D artist selling his stuff on CGTrader? First of all when you click +1 on your product, you promote it on Google search by informing your network of related people. The more visitors click on +1 on your product page, the higher position your product appears in Google search results pages. This can help your products stand out from competition.

Auto-publishing Large Libraries via FTP

Re-publishing large library to a new online shop can be tedious task. It may take weeks to upload hundreds of models one by one and set all the relevant details. Although artists want to increase publicity for their products, usually they don't want to go through boring job of publishing whole library once again.

After discussing with several big vendors we started offering auto-publishing via FTP. Now all you need to do is to simply upload model files via FTP and tell us where your products are published online. We will do there rest. Your products will be published and assigned to your CGTrader account with all relevant information, preview images and file formats.

Interested artists, please write us info@cgtrader.com. We will create FTP account for you and explain the details.

And now we will make interior designers even more happy revealing the last big upload by the sbgwolf: ~90 great models of furniture (sofas, tables, cabinets, beds, chairs, etc) and different stuff to be placed in 3D interior designs.

The quality of the models is amazing and we're proud to partnership with such a fabulous artist!

We're sure the buyers will enjoy the models and be happy to pay the artist full price for his talent.
