It’s August again and some of the Sketchfab Team are at SIGGRAPH (go say hi to them at booth #410)! To celebrate the annual conference, we’re launching a freeform challenge that embraces the conference’s theme this year: generations. So grab your computer and use your imagination – what do you think of when you think of generations?
UPDATE: Winner – Catbus Roller Coaster by Se7en23
TL;DR: Use whatever 3D method you prefer to create a model that shows at least three generations of something. Upload it to Sketchfab and tag it #GenerationsChallenge.
Here’s some inspiration. Featured model POLAR BEAR FAMILY by Ubros:
- Use any tool you like to create a model that shows at least three generations of something.
- The model can be static or animated.
- Give the model a title and a brief (max 50 words) description.
- Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
- Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #GenerationsChallenge.
- Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
- Submission deadline is Monday, August 27th (23:59 New York time – EDT)
- Shaderbytes, Renafox, Chaitanya Krishnan, Rik Bigelaar, and Abby Crawford Sketchfab Masters
- Tom and Bart, Sketchfab Community Team
The winner receives a $100 Amazon gift card (or equivalent if you don’t have access to Amazon), and of course we’ll add three months of Sketchfab PRO to your account.
