    Hi, everybody!

    Two months ago we've started 3d model search engine.
    Its like a Google, but only for 3d models.
    http://3dmdb.com/ - 3d model database.

    Soon we'll add filters by price/format and search by pictures and by topology/profile/shape.

    What else is necessary for your opinion? Would be great to get any feedback from you.
    Thanks.

    Its a great start! I always wondered why something like this didn't exist already. Kudos for creating it. Will it tap into more 3d model sources in the future? P.e Sketchup 3d Warehouse
    Some other useful filters might be Textured or Shaders, and maybe a filter for Rigged when searching for cars/people/etc.

    Just a side note would be the text over the renders is hard to read sometimes, maybe put it under the render similar to the google shopping grid view. This is just my opinion, otherwise great work!

    Looking good. Filtering according to file format is highly useful!

    Thanks a lot for your comment!
    Yes, we want to try to index all existing websites with 3D models. I've added 3dwarehouse.sketchup.com to our index list. If you know more interesting resources - write it, please!
    We'll try to add all necesarry filters - the price filter will be rready in a few days, and then - others.
    What about the text over previews - yes, I agree. We already have got normal design, but I don't know, where can we introduce it... =)

    There are more than 2 million 3d models in the index of our search engine.

    Thanks to users support the number of models increases and grows every day. The total number of models can be viewed on the main page http://3dmdb.com
