The rebuilt W3DC Site currently has all the needed functionality to scale from mobile to desktop, as well we've redesigned this platform for several new features to be integrated in the near future.
While we could have built in more features, we first wanted to start getting artists and members onto the site to get their feedback on what they want and need.
We want to become a reliable third party ad free destination for indie original content creators, artists and enthusiasts of realtime 3d, 3d games, virtual worlds and 3d printing and most importantly letting you discover and collect all the amazing works artists create.
While anyone can potentially add anything they want to the site, we don't wish to see things that infringes with trademarked and copyrighted items and designs and kindly remind members that they can do better and to remove those items.
As there is a lot of development going on in the 3d game-, architecture visualization-, realtime online 3d- and 3d printing area there is a gap between programmers and content creators we want to bridge.
Also some time back I discovered virtual worlds like Secondlife and started to explore several alternatives like bluemars, opensimulator, realXtend, open cobalt, unity3d, and many more to be impressed by all the creative possibilities as well as the great spirit of many indie artists.
But I wished there was a place where to find platform independent quality content that is tailored for use in these different environments.
So the idea for the Web 3d Community started to materialise.
A different way to help funding promising open source web 3d projects.
We need open source environments in one way or the other, otherwise we all will be missing out.
Royalities from project dedicated shops will benefit the corresponding project.
See your purchases from a project shop like a donation where you get more in
return then a thank you.
Donating directly isn't an option for everyone, which is why virtual shopping sprees have become one of the preferred methods of charitable support
Easily create your own storefront to display your designs.
Use the built-in social media tools to drive traffic back to your own store and watch the sales and exposure of your works grow in your dashboard.
Freely determine the price of your digital items by yourself - your commission rate stays always the same.
Schedule sales and discounts they way you see fit.
Keep in mind that the minimum price on w3dc.com is USD 4.90 per product to avoid that you have to compete for visibility against freebies.
