Sketchfab Voxel Challenge: The Robots are Coming!

Back to overview

We all know the robots are coming – to take our jobs, drive our cars or make our coffee. But what else could they do, and what will they look like? In this challenge you’ll dream up new tasks for our robot overlords, and show them at work in a voxel scene.

Enter and you could soon be the owner of your own robot servant!

Update: this challenge has ended; you can see the winner here.


  • Create a robot scene using voxels.
  • Use any 3D modeling tool that you like (including Minecraft), although using a specialised one will make your life a lot easier!
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #RobotsAreComing (and why not throw in #voxels and #voxelart for good measure too?)
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, February 27 (23:59 New York time – EST)



The winner will receive an awesome DIY bluetooth-controlled robot (value $70), as well as 3 months of Sketchfab PRO (value $45).
