Sketchfab saves Google Poly creators with new transfer tool «Next Reality



A repository of 3D objects for use in AR and VR experiences, Google Poly is the latest Google offering to fall victim to the company’s habit of phasing out products and services regardless of popularity.

Competitive 3D content marketplace Sketchfab sees an opportunity and has swooped in to provide Poly users with a lifeline during this difficult time.

On Tuesday, Sketchfab announced Poly to Sketchfab, a web-based tool built in collaboration with the Google Poly team that allows users to transfer their Poly 3D files to Sketchfab.

After linking their Poly and Sketchfab accounts to the tool, migrators will be presented with a list of 3D files for transfer, with only Tilt Brush and Tour Creator 360 degree files not eligible. After selecting their files, they can complete the process by uploading their assets to Sketchfab.

Speaking of Tilt Brush, another abandoned Google product, users can export their creations to Sketchfab within Tilt Brush itself.

In addition, Sketchfab has a solution for developers who have integrated Poly into their apps as an asset library. The download API offers similar functionality. The Download API tool gives users over 500,000 free 3D models licensed under Creative Commons.
