Digital Life aims to preserve the heritage of life on Earth by creating and sharing high-quality and accurate 3D models of living organisms. Digital Life aims to spur scientific discovery, support wildlife conservation and create educational opportunities.Digital Life is also a non-profit initiative within the University of Massachusetts at Amherst that creates digital 3D models of living organisms to support wildlife conservation, science, and education. The initiative is partnering with scientists, zoos, and NGOs to ethically gain access to a wide array of animals for 3D scanning, including endangered species.Also, counts with a deeply rooted conservation ethic, an innovative team of experts, unique 3D scanning technology, and a network of science, education and conservation partners- the team aims to become the leader in 3D modeling for life on Earth.

Is there an actual market for selling 3D models?

The immediate answer is Yes, there is a huge market for 3D and specifically, 3D models as every company are beginning to shy away from 2D and focusing on 3D. If you’re thinking about breaking into 3D and you look at other artists’ 3D work to compare and don’t feel like your stuff is up to part, there’s a solution for it. Put more time into your 3D work, do more research, see what’s selling at the moment. What kinds of objects are you going to model? Objects like consumer electronics are in high demand since it's much easier to create an image for an ad that looks like a photograph than to hire a photographer to shoot it. But the market is already flooded with smartphones, tablets, digital cameras. So you could focus on something less common like diesel-powered gas compressors - but then your market will be very tiny. What formats will you provide your model in? MAX, 3DS, FBX, and OBJ are the most popular, but MAX is proprietary and requires 3D Studio MAX to create. Exporting the models to OBJ or 3DS is an option, but each will lose something in the translation. Plus the person buying your model needs to have a compatible 3D program. There are various marketplaces for 3d models but the most popular are nice and easy to use customer support, and there are a lot of brands such as Cgtrader.com, open 24/7 and the most significant revenue share, it is about 90 %, and it goes directly from buyer to seller. The fact that these type of companies works on fair market rules should attract not only sellers keen on support, respect and most significant revenue but also buyers who can find the lowest prices in the 3d models market and also making an impact to the earth such as Digital Life.
