Tips and news from the place to be for 3D

Ready to move it, move it? 3D Animation now available for everyone!

We’re proud to announce that all Sketchfab users can now publish their animations in interactive 3D, anywhere.

Since the beta launch in August, over 1,000 community members helped us test animation and we’ve been blown away by the animations they published. It was amazing to see how they’ve used it to give motion to characters, illustrate educational concepts or product features and tell stories.

Sketchfab shows all my animation, not just from a single viewpoint.

Publishing an animation is simple: just export your animation from any 3D application to an FBX file and upload it to Sketchfab. If you use 3DS Max or Maya it’s even easier, as our free exporter plugins for these applications already support animations (and others will follow). Learn more on the Help Centre page on Animation.

Animation provides so much life to the characters we’re making. Being able to show that in an easy way is amazing for us.
