has launched its Model Bank, the next-generation online marketplace dedicated exclusively to the 3D community. Model Bank brings together individuals and companies worldwide who have created 3D content (wireframe models, motion capture data, etc.) with those who need it.
Model Bank offers a digital retail marketplace where sellers can publish, price, market and track the sales of their own products. This allows creative professionals the ability to sell their work directly to buyers, while retaining both ownership of their assets and complete control over the pricing and inventory they sell.
Model Bank offers buyers a large and ever-expanding resource of quality 3D content backed by acclaimed technical support and service.
Weve learned a lot since we created the first online marketplace for digital assets in 1999, said Digimation president/ceo David Avgikos. Model Bank is the fruition of our extensive expertise in the 3D industry and our goal to develop an enhanced online marketplace dedicated specifically to 3D content.
Model Bank offers a number of exclusive features including: Realtime Format Conversion, which instantly delivers 3D content in the format of the user's choice, and BankShield, security software so powerful that Model Bank guarantees its sellers no lost sales due to fraudulent credit card use.
As a company involved in the creation of 3D content, were excited about the launch of Model Bank, said Tom Knight, president of Imagination Works. Being able to deliver our models in a variety of formats, combined with Digimations excellent reputation and reach into the 3D community will open up many new markets for our products.
Model Bank is now available for creative professionals to begin uploading and purchasing 3D content. Further information about the site can be found at www.modelbank.com
