FOR THE NEXT UPDATE : Really big suggestion
Hi ! I'm talking to CGT staff but members as well.
It would be really cool in the next update if you make a feature allowing the 3D artists to download their own models.
I know it has already be mentioned many times but it would be really cool, because it's tiring to have to put a model to 0 $ for a few seconds, download the model, and reput the price.
Thanks in advance :)
I would like this option, too. For me it's more to do with the eventuality that my PC/Laptop breaks down, I will have a place to download my own completed models at least! I know 3dexport has this function, and it'll be great if cgtrader does, too!
I agree! It could be usefull
Why do you have to download your models so often? You can create a backup copy of your models, on an external hard drive for example. It is also advisable to have a copy in a different physical location, for possible eventualities such as fires or floods. In the document of rights and obligations of the members says:
"18.4 Sellers should keep a backup of their own uploaded Products at all times Sellers' files uploaded to the Site can not be used as a backup source."
So I do not think that's going to change. I also believe that every user can and should worry about this issue for their own good and that CGT has other, more serious and important issues to worry about.
Both sides are correct, this site is not a cloud of support, but it would be good something like a ticket to download them more easily in case of losing all our info or something like that.
Something like that's what I thought! Just in case of emergency ...
I think that this feature is also usable when customers need support.
Then I can download and work with the exactly same model as the customer downloaded after purchasing.
When I have model on my disk I am not 100% sure that it is exactly the same as the file uploaded to CGT, especially at some very old models.
I believe its inappropriate to use the site as cloud backup, its not that hard to store your work in encrypted archive upload it to a cloud drive or store it on your local drive. If its up to me CGtrader staff do not need to invest time to turn this site into a cloud drive. It would probably also compromise safety.
