Do you think you have 3D modeling skills? 3DVIA is proud to announce its first 3DVIA Challenge – a special bi-monthly contest to prove which of our users has the best 3D modeling skills.
Every other week (or so), we’ll announce a new 3DVIA challenge asking you to submit your best work based upon a set list of guidelines. Each challenge will be different and will have you testing your 3D modeling skills against thousands of other modelers. For our first challenge, we start with a very popular content type on the site…military vehicles under the theme of ” The Military Might”.
