Khronos Group Welcomes CGTrader as Contributor Member

Established in 2011, CGTrader is the world’s largest 3D content provider, with 1.1M 3D models and 3.9M 3D designers on board.

Today, more than 420,000 businesses are sourcing assets on CGTrader Stock Marketplace, and leading eCommerce brands and retailers are using CGTrader ARsenal, the end-to-end 3D product visualization and AR platform, to generate 3D content for the entire eCommerce pipeline.

Brands like Nike, Microsoft, Made.com, NVIDIA, and Staples choose the ARsenal enterprise platform to produce high-quality, photorealistic 3D assets for everything from product prototyping and marketing collateral to virtual showrooms and product experiences.

By combining our state-of-the-art 3D automation tools with the world’s largest 3D designer community, we gain a unique scalability advantage. Our platform can handle thousands of 3D models per month to deliver top-quality visuals in timelines that are not feasible for most other providers.

“Since the company was founded a decade ago by a 3D designer Marius Kalytis (COO), CGTrader has been committed to making 3D content accessible to all industries and businesses,” explains CGTrader CEO and co-founder Dalia Lasaite. “Creating consistent standards and 3D asset experience will accelerate the mass adoption of 3D media across all platforms and customer touch points, enriching online experiences and inevitably paving the way for future innovation. We are delighted to join forces with the preeminent leaders of the Khronos Group and contribute to developing the guidelines for 3D media standards.”

Varjo Achieves Full Conformance with OpenXR 1.0

Khronos Group Welcomes SuperDNA3DLab as Associate Member

SuperDNA is an established 3D lab offering cutting-edge 3D solutions along with its partners and develop 3D content for all facets of the e-commerce pipeline from product sampling and prototyping, to marketing, virtual showroom creation, and product representations. We have created over 40,000 high-performing, true-to-life 3D models and have nearly half a million hours of experience.

With a repository of more than 75,000 materials and textures, we have significantly cut down the turnaround time and costs for the creation of even the most complex 3D products.

We have recently joined the Khronos Group to stay abreast of the latest developments in the authoring and integration of interoperability standards for 3D media.

We are glad to join hands and interface with the industry-leading members of the Khronos Group and work in tandem to define how customers interact with embedded 3D models and product representations across platforms.

We eagerly look forward to liaising with the preeminent leaders in the technology landscape who are defining the consistency and harmony of dynamic media for end consumers on embedded as well as high-performing systems.
