In a recent blogpost, 3D model platform Sketchfab has announced its partnership with Intel.
After unveiling their RealSense 3D camera built into a smartphone prototype earlier this year, Intel will incorporate Sketchfab’s API into their RealSense Software Development Kit. Users of devices integrating Intel’s 3D camera, such as HP’s Sprout or the handheld 3D scanner by XYZprinting, will be able to directly upload captured 3D objects to Sketchfab.
Among other companies, that have partnered with Sketchfab, are the Structure Sensor, Fuel3D with their handheld Scanify 3D scanner and Microsoft with the HoloLens to name just a few. Additionally, Sketchfab users can share their 3D models with the Facebook community by embedding them directly into their posts.
Mark Yahiro, Managing Director, New Business Perceptual Computing, at Intel: “We believe we are on the cusp of a digital revolution with the ability to scan real people, objects and places, and integrate them into our digital worlds. By making Sketchfab’s API available as part of the Intel RealSense SDK, developers can easily integrate any scanned object into their application and share it on their favorite social platforms like Facebook, as well as other digital spaces such as blogs and websites.”
