SketchFab is a new online 3D showcase service, that allows you to embed 3D models on your webpage using WebGL. They allow direct upload of Blender files.
SketchFab is a free service offering a simple way to upload and showcase 3D content online. It doesnʼt require any third application installation from the user to work. You just need an internet connection and a webgl compatible browser.
SketchFab accepts more than twenty 3D formats. The service can for example be used by an architect to show his project at a client meeting on any computer, or on its own website, without needing any advanced and expensive web development. In the end, you get to see your model as if you were on your 3D creation software, but online and sharable with a simple url.
SketchFab uses WebGL api, the only standard technology to display 3D content with high quality. On the contrary to plugins, the technology is scalable, and will soon be able to display 3D content on any device: desktop, smartphones, tablets…
SketchFab will evolve to become a freemium service: the actual free version with basic 3D visualization features, and a commercial version with advanced features (more storage space, unlimited uploads, online editing, collaborative work on 3D models, etc…) SketchFab wants to become a “vimeo for 3D”.
