Lithuania - March 27, 2015 - CGTrader, The fastest growing community and marketplace for 3D graphics and printing designs, today announced that its design community has uploaded over 100,000 3D models to the ground-breaking marketplace.
3D designers embraced CGTrader very quickly uploading 50,000 models onto the site in the first two and a half years of operation. It took them less than a year to double the amount of 3D models and double revenues for designers. Growth numbers over the past two years has been staggering:
Number of users Number of models
March 2013 2,374 10,238
March 2015 145,123 104,897
The industry's most designer-friendly online platform, CGTrader members have uploaded an incredible range of 3D models in many categories, including aircraft, animals, household, science, architectural, gadgets, art, and fashion, among others. Art jewelry and miniatures are currently generating the highest number of transactions.
"We started CGTrader to create fair and transparent working conditions for 3D professionals and have been uncompromising in our goals to always put the designer first," said Marius Kalytis, CEO and founder of CGTrader.com. "Clearly our efforts have been recognized as the computer graphics and design industry's biggest names and upcoming artists alike continue to find great success."
This significant milestone will be marked by special CGTrader Awards to be announced in April, that will celebrate the industry's best software companies, most influential artists, news outlets, and best 3D works, as voted by the designer community. CGTrader is known for its commitment to democratize the 3D market and its dedication to educating 3D enthusiasts about 3D printing technology.
"While low-end 3D printers are underutilized by mainstream consumers, we believe that the industry is just a few years away from producing consumer products with industrial 3D printers at mass manufacturing prices, creating immense demand for 3D content and design skills," said Dalia Lasaite, CMO of CGTrader.com. "Today, a novice consumer can go to our site, download almost anything they can imagine, and send the file to a local 3D printer to pick up their model. They can also use online printers and have it shipped to them."
The marketplace has more than 150,000 registered members and continues to grow at a rapid pace. For more information, visit: www.cgtrader.com.
