*Gives one a sense of what the 3D metaverse creatives are up to lately.



When you’re putting on an interdimensional art show you need somewhere to host your party. Places, spaces, architecture, planes of existence – where will you take us!?

•Create a 3D model of an imaginative and functional interdimensional art gallery space – you’ll need to build places to put the art, but also space for your guests to mingle.

•Optimisation is essential. Make your model file size as small as possible.

•Technical specifications:

•Use a maximum of 50,000 faces for your model.

•Create and use only Base Color, Normal, Ambient Occlusion, Roughness, Metallic, Emissive texture maps.

•Use a maximum of 25 texture maps.

•Use a maximum of 2048×2048 pixel dimensions for each texture map (you are encouraged to go smaller where possible).

•Optional but encouraged: baked scene lighting

•Upload your entry to Sketchfab, tag it #HubsArtGallery, and make it downloadable under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license.

•Use your model to VR meeting space a room using Hubs’ Spoke tool. Create a room and share the room link in your model description on Sketchfab
