Modelsend: Get Web-based and Private Feedback on your Models


A new service called Modelsend has entered the arena of online 3D sharing, and they offer some interesting new collaboration functionality.

We understand. Your 3D model isn't just a file; it's a culmination of hard work, creativity, and passion. But sharing it with others? That's a whole different ballgame. There are genuine concerns about intellectual property, especially when it comes to unique designs or commercial undertakings. The challenge then becomes, how do you give someone a taste without handing over the full course?

Now, the question arises: How do you show off your intricate 3D model without actually giving away the proprietary file?

You could share screenshots or rendered images and while this method does shield the actual files, it significantly diminishes the interactive essence of a 3D model. A static image cannot capture the depth, angles, and intricacies of a 3D creation.

Modelsend: The Share-Without-Sharing Approach

Enter a solution where you don't have to compromise your design's integrity to showcase it.

Quick informal disclaimer: I work for Modelsend, so I might be a tad bit biased, but hear me out.

Modelsend offers an innovative solution to this age-old problem. Without having to part ways with your actual 3D model file, you can still allow collaborators, clients, or reviewers to fully interact with your model. How?

The process is refreshingly straightforward. Upload your 3D model or multiple models, and you'll get a private link. Share this link, and voila! Anyone with the link can view your 3D masterpiece right in their browser. They can zoom, pan, rotate, and most importantly, place comments directly on the model. Every feedback, query, or appreciation remains attached to the exact point of interest on the model.

Modelsend also uses state-of-the-art encryption to ensure that every model you upload remains secure. No more sleepless nights worrying about the safety of your files!

The Best of Both Worlds

This method harmoniously combines the need for security with the desire for interaction. By sharing a viewing link instead of the file itself, you retain full control over your intellectual property while still benefiting from collaboration and feedback. Gone are the days of vague comments based on screenshots. With Modelsend, feedback is precise, contextual, and actionable.

In the world of 3D modeling, where the line between creation and proprietary content often blurs, tools like Modelsend bridge the gap. Sharing, collaborating, and getting invaluable feedback has never been this efficient — all without ever parting with your files.
