Sketchfab Turns Six

Back to overview

Today is our 6 year anniversary, so I figured I’d share the Sketchfab recipe in 6 steps:

  1. build a fabulous web-based 3D player
  2. integrate with all the ways to create 3D content
  3. as a result of #1 & #2, become the go-to way for 3D creators to publish their work, and grow a fantastic community: 1.5M members, and counting.
  4. as a result of #3, become a massive library of amazing 3D content: 2.5M models, and growing.
  5. introduce a way for 3D creators to monetize their creations – the Sketchfab Store
  6. integrate back in all the creation tools as a way to search and import content – the Sketchfab Download API


I’m so proud of the team for what we have built. We cannot thank you, our community of creators, enough. Without you we would have never made our way past #1. What a journey!
