Another challenge has come to an end. This time, the 3D Challenge with the theme of Space organized by CGTrader ran from the 9th October 2017 till 10th December 2017 and has attracted artists from all over the world to submit original space-themed designs in low (models up to 50,000 polygons) and high (models with more than 50,000 polygons) poly categories. The end of the challenge means the start of the extremely difficult models’ evaluation process due to huge participation from the artists. A total of 240 high-quality models were submitted ranging from planets, asteroids, aliens, rockets, satellites to space stations have been evaluated and dozens of discussion were made! Most models in this challenge are ready for Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), games and other real-time apps.Judging panels from Fox Renderfarm, CGTrader, 3D-Coat, Cebas Visual Technology, Quixel, and Exlevel worked together to decide the Challenge winners. The judging criteria for both categories were quality of the model (the most IMPORTANT criteria), as well as uniqueness, innovation, and general achievement in design of the model.Well, there are only just six places for the winners.
