Sketchfab Texturing Challenge: Suitcase

Back to overview

This week we challenge you to download and texture this suitcase, upload it to Sketchfab, and tag it #SuitcaseChallenge.

To give or get feedback on entries, head over to the Forum! And to see all of the entries, check out the tag gallery.


  • Please only download the .obj version of the model to work with, we’d had some issues with the gltf conversion.
  • If you need to update the UV mapping, that’s ok.
  • Changing scenery, adding props and extra geometry is not allowed in this challenge.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #SuitcaseChallenge.
  • Credit the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History for their model and Romullus for the retopology and UV unwrapping in your model description, and add a link back to the original by adding this markdown code:
