Sketchfab and Unity team up on Unity Connect

Back to overview

We’re excited to share in the celebration of the launch of Unity Connect today and our collaboration on this project. The new networking platform from the world’s most popular game creation software has launched and supports Sketchfab embeds from day one.

Unity has expanded its commitment to game developers and artisans by giving them a home to collaborate, connect, and hire the best in the gaming industry.
