Sketchfab and integration into polycount boards

https://sketchfab.com/

Anyone used sketchfab? What do you all think? Pros and cons? Worth the money? Is this the future of 3D portfolios?

I think it's a great idea to make showing off real-time 3D models portable. It takes control away from the artist to present their work in such a way to hide texture seams, etc. So perhaps it will up the standards of 3D art...and make our jobs harder! But it does increase the wow-factor, giving the user/viewer more control over the 3D model. Also...I wonder if sketchfab will eventually evolve into a browser-integrated game engine, like Unity's ability to make browser-based games.

This was just announced--polycount forums now have an integrated sketchfab viewer. Cool. Great way to get more informed critiques.

yes its high time we got it here as well.. have been using it in various other forums.. and now with their material editor and hdri lighting options its totally worth it.. much better than competing sites.. which only started supporting multiple materials recently(sketchfab has been doing that since the beginning)..

the portfolio option is great, but its also great for game artists .. since their models are designed to be seen in a realtime environment anyway

wanted to clarify that its great for displaying dense meshes, like
sculpts etc.. works quite well for non gaming optimised models as well.
