Coming Soon!

Calling all 3D artists and enthusiasts! Volunteer for projects you are interested in or start your own. Empower one another to create!

The mission of open3Dproject.org

Bring people together to accomplish art projects and bolster the community.

We at open3Dproject.org believe that there are many artists and enthusiasts out there that would be willing to work with others to make great things. Giving them a way to find each other and work together is the key.

Community

Countless successful open source software projects have shown us that when people come together can produce truly wonderful things. We believe that members of the community are generally unselfish and willing to work with no promise of great momentary gain. Providing a venue for 3D artists to display their skills to one another, and the world, is where open3Dproject.org comes in.

Motivation

Although contribution probably won't make an individual rich or immediately land them a job at their favorite studio, it does afford the opportunity to bolster their resume, learn from others, and experience the reward of a job well done. A contributor can take on project tasks based on their skill level and availability. One can contribute to projects at a pace they feel comfortable with; taking on as much (or as little) work as they believe they can provide for the team. During the course of a project, individuals have an opportunity to network with their peers, learn, teach, and build their portfolios. Obviously, the more a people put in the more they get out.

How will open3Dproject.org help?

First, we would like to build a place where 3D enthusiasts and artists go to look for projects. Instead of searching "Help Wanted" threads in various forums, most of which being old and dead, they come here for the latest news on community 3D projects. If they find an open project of particular interest that they would like to contribute to, they join (or apply to join) it. From there, project members will have access to the project where they can interact with the team and contribute.

Features of open3Dproject.org

Okay, I'm part of a project team. What can I do?

How do I execute an idea for a project?

As you can see, there is a lot to running an open project. And we're just getting started! Open3Dproject.org is here to help the community overcome some of the technical hurdles of running a distributed project so you can focus on being more productive. Stay tuned...

Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
