Sketchfab 3D Editor Challenge: Shift Happens

Back to overview

This week we challenge you to download Shift Happens – Forest Diorama, upload it to your Sketchfab account, and adjust the settings in Sketchfab’s 3D Editor to give the model an entirely new look and feel.

Share your vision for the scene and give/get feedback on the challenge topic on the Forum. And check out all the entries in the tag gallery!

To see what the judges had to say about the winning entry, head on over to the Forum.

  • Give the model a unique title and briefly describe what settings you chose.
  • Once you’ve uploaded the model to Sketchfab, edit the 3D Settings, and tag it #ShiftHappensChallenge.
  • Credit Klonk Games for their model in your model description, and add a link back to the original by adding this Markdown code:
