Creative Market Goes 3D!

Aaron Epstein March 31, 2021 · 4 min read

We started Creative Market a little more than 2 years ago with a vision to build the world’s marketplace for design, where anyone with an idea could get access to a massive library of ready-to-use design assets to make their creative projects look incredible. But if you’re working on a new game, film, architectural design, or construction project, you know that not all creative projects begin and end in the 2D world.
So today, we’re expanding to launch a brand new 3D content category, making it easy to find, license, and download high-quality 3D assets directly from top independent 3D artists around the world. With a growing library of models, textures, and animations, and the backing of Autodesk (our parent company!), we’re excited to take our first step into the world of 3D.

Going Beyond Screenshots

We knew that static 2D screenshots wouldn’t do this new category justice, so we’ve partnered with 3D community Sketchfab to make it possible to interact with live 3D model previews directly on the product page. That means you can rotate, zoom, and explore models up close, from any angle. It’s like being able to try before you buy!
Here are a few examples of these interactive previews that you can find in the new 3D category:

CERBERUS by PROTOFACTOR

Survival Prop Pack by PolyPixel Online Store

Modular_Building_1 by 2dawngames

Low Poly Angel Female by Bitgem

Integrated Into Autodesk Apps

3ds Max Integration

When Creative Market was acquired by Autodesk in 2014, we had a vision of not only launching a new 3D category backed by the biggest name in 3D, but also making time-saving assets available to 3D artists in the tools they use every day.
That’s why we’re also announcing a direct integration into 3ds Max 2016, giving users instant access to download ready-to-use content without ever leaving the app. Additionally, Autodesk Stingray launched last week with a dedicated hub on Creative Market, so game makers can purchase 3D models, animations, and materials to include in their games.

Calling All 3D Artists!

Power to the 3D Artists
Our mission has always been to elevate the creative community and help independent designers make a living doing what they love — creating amazing content.
So if you’re passionate about making top-quality 3D models and assets, come open a shop on Creative Market so we can promote your work to millions of people each month, and help you earn money:

  • Integrated with Autodesk apps
    Your 3D products will be available for sale inside industry-standard software like 3ds Max.
  • Keep 60% of each sale
    You put in the hard work, you deserve more from each sale.
  • Set your own prices
    Keep complete control over your portfolio and pricing.
  • No exclusivity lock-in
    Sell models with us, in your own site, or anywhere else, without any penalties, reduced commissions or extra fees.
  • No per-product review process
    Once your shop is approved, you’ll be able to add products to your shop instantly, without any approval waiting period.
  • Custom-branded shop profile
    Establish your unique identity with your own branded shop.
  • Community of 1,000,000+ members
    Our fast-growing platform is built around driving exposure for independent artists. Keep producing great work, and we’ll do everything we can to get you the recognition you deserve.

Just The Beginning…

A lot of hard work has gone into launching this new category, but this is only the beginning. We’re committed to building the best place to buy and sell 3D assets anywhere online (or in-app!), and doing everything we can to support the independent creators whose work inspires us all.

  • It's a shame that opening a new shop here is only reserved for already established artists with some sort of track record they can demonstrate on applying to start a shop. As a beginner, I have no portfolio or exposure or history but was hoping to use this platform as a means of starting out - sadly, the "limited space" available for shops means I can't really get a foot in the door here. Need to go elsewhere - and if I do get established elsewhere, I see little incentive (other than to increase exposure) to apply for a shop here. I do understand the need to avoid useless clutter though, it's just unfortunate newbies don't get a look in. 5 years ago
