Sketchfab March Challenge: Favorite Toy

Back to overview

This month we’re teaming up with CapturingReality for a 3D Scanning challenge. Just take photos of your favorite toy and process it in RealityCapture, upload it to Sketchfab using RealityCapture’s built in exporter, and tag it #RCToyChallenge.

To help you on your way, CapturingReality is giving each entrant 20 EUR RealityCapture PPI credits to enter! Read on for more details.

Toys. Each of us had or still has their favourite toy. It really doesn’t matter what it is as long as there is a positive emotion attached to it. From plush toys to toy cars or lego bricks. Let’s be creative! This challenge is also a perfect opportunity for those who have not tried RealityCapture PPI yet, to explore the benefits of this licensing as we are offering limited number of PPI credits for the duration of contest.
