Sketchfab 3D Scanning Challenge: Summer Fun

Back to overview

We’re officially in summer now, which means that it’s time to get out into the sunshine and capture something you love about summer. Is it your trusty beach chair, your camping gear, or perhaps your vegetable garden? Or maybe a piña colada? Whatever summer means to you, it’s time to get scanning.

UPDATE: Winner – The Sand by Pimplik


TL;DR: 3D Scan something that says “summer” to you using your preferred tools and software, upload it to Sketchfab and tag the model #SummerScanChallenge.


  • Scan something summery with your preferred scanning workflow.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #SummerScanChallenge.
  • Share work-in-progress, tips and ask for advice on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, August 13th (23:59 New York time – EST)
