Sketchfab Freeform Challenge: Typography and Type

Back to overview

Words. WORDS. Words. Words.

In this week’s first-ever Freeform Challenge, we’re venturing beyond the figural world to the typographical. The challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create some cool 3D word art.

Update: Winner – A Come Amore by Tombolaso

TL;DR: Use whatever 3D method you prefer to create some neat word art. Upload it to Sketchfab and tag it #textchallenge.


  • Use any tool you like to create a great example of 3D word art.
  • 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 #textchallenge.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, July 16th (23:59 New York time – EDT)



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.
