3D-Coat Contest: Robot Animals

Back to overview

We recently announced our support for 3D-Coat PBR in Sketchfab, and to celebrate how easy it is, we’re running a contest so you can try 3D-Coat for yourself too!

3D-Coat 4.5.04 is completely compatible with Sketchfab PBR system! Their latest version contains a Sketchfab exporter that publishes your project to Sketchfab, sets up all required PBR materials and then enables the PBR renderer. It’s as easy as one click

Contest Challenge

The theme is robot/mechanical animals. One of the coolest features of 3D-Coat is that metalness and roughness painted in 3D-Coat with smart materials will be correctly shown in Sketchfab so mechanical models look amazing. Combining that with animals gives you a wide scope for your imagination! Here’s one to get you inspired:
