Sketchfab Begins Beta Testing for 3D Animations

Sketchfab, an online database for 3D-models, has announced that they will soon begin implementing support allowing users to showcase not only their 3D models, but accompanying animations as well. The site, likened to a “Youtube for 3D models”, has grown tremendously in the short time it’s been active, and the new step adds many possibilities for both new users and veterans of the platform (read more about Sketchfab here).

“Animation support is a huge step for Sketchfab as a product, it’s pretty much a 4th dimension. It means you can now tell mini interactive stories and share them anywhere online. We want to be the best place for your 3D files, so we will continue to improve Sketchfab as you push creative boundaries,” said Alban Denoyel, CEO of Sketchfab.

The program currently offers the options of “space” and “bone” animations, with each offering different levels of difficulty and sophistication. Boasting a strong audience among architects already, with the release of animation support Sketchfab may become a useful tool for the development of transformable architecture.
