Sketchfab Simulation Challenge: Refreshing Summer Splash

Back to overview

Summer is almost here! And to help the Sketchfab community stay cool, you’re to create a refreshing scene using fluid simulation: things dropping in water, fountains, Super Soaker fights… What do you do to stay cool?

TL;DR: Create a refreshing scene using your favourite fluid simulation tool, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it with #RefreshingSummerChallenge.

Update: the winner is… Refreshing Sweet Sweet Sweet Summer! by Adox

Example model:


  • Create a refreshing scene using your favourite fluid simulation tool(s).
  • Animation is not required! But if you do, try exporting your simulation as an Alembic file, or use our Time Frame animation feature as illustrated in this Blender tutorial.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #RefreshingSummerChallenge.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, June 26 (23:59 New York time – EST)



This awesome ice cube-filled Nerf Super Soaker Arctic Shock Water Blaster (value $60) could be yours! Perhaps not the best way to refresh yourself, but well, it works fantastic on others 😉

And of course we’ll add three months of Sketchfab PRO to your account.
