Question Would sword models sell well in Turbo squid?

Would they?

Probably not.
You can try it but probably not.

Why not try to hit up the niche market at Daz3d or Renderosity? You can sell probably more products there for people looking to buy products all day long.

Mine wasn't selling until I applied the hattori hanzo steel material to it. Now I am rich.

It's hard to make money selling sword models. It's such a cutthroat business.

If they´re cutting edge they might sell well.

Swords are overdone, you can get a dozen for a dime. Daggers are where the money is now.

Aren't daggers simply a shorter sword?

Nah, daggers are shorter than short swords.

Type "sword" into TurboSquid and you'd soon realise that it's packed to the hilt with swords. On the other hand, they all looked pretty awful, so you might be able to make a killing if you strike while the iron is hot.

Yes his sword will need to be sharper than the rest if it is to stand a chance of selling.
