Preparing for Publishing

Before publishing your 3D model for sale, run down this checklist and make sure you’ve done everything possible to make your model sell.

  • Create a professional signature image.
  • Create at least one rendered turntable of the entire model 65 frames at 30 frames per second at 800px X 600px will be accepted also wireframe.
  • In addition to the signature image, create at least five still rendered thumbnails at 1268 x 951 or above, if you already have you images set to 1024px width this should not be a problem.
  • Create at least two wireframe stills and one wireframe turntable.
  • If UVs are unwrapped, save an image of the unwrapped UVs to use as a thumbnail.
  • Name your textures and materials intelligently, and strip out all map paths.
  • Be sure to save the model with the lighting you used in the featured image. Customers like to render the model “out of the box” and see the same result they saw in the featured image.
  • Export the model to as many other file formats as you can, especially generic file formats like OBJ and FBX. This will make your model accessible to as many customers as possible.
  • Package the models with the textures included in each zip file.
  • Note the poly count and vertex count without subdivision. You’ll need this when publishing.

Packaging Textures

Because most customers download only one file format, it’s best to package all textures with each file format supplied with your model. Make it easy on your customers and package all the textures with each file format. That way, a customer will download the file format and the textures at the same time, and there won’t be any confusion. If you find that the model is too big for upload try putting your textures into a separate .rar file this should not be a problem as we will correct it on our end.

Set the price of your product, if you have already decided a price then great but if you are struggling here is a little advice.

For instance take 500$ divide it by 25 hours work time. You get 20$ per hour. Here in UK that’s about £15 per hour. A cleaning person gets the same here or even more. Don’t sell your work for less, only to get a sale or because someone says so.

Uploading your product and image previews, we ask that you upload at least 5 preview images in color, a few in clay render and some wire frame renders. The more images preview images you have you’ll increase the chance of making a sale.
