Poly: Google’s 3D Creators Community Goes Live, Alternative To Microsoft’s Remix 3D

With the rise in the availability of 3D content on the web, the need for sharing platforms for 3D objects has also risen. Microsoft has Remix 3D, which allows users to browse various 3D shapes, make changes to them using apps like Paint3D, and share them.

Now, moving along the like of sharing is caring, Google has launched their new online community called Poly. Similar to Remix 3D, Poly allows people to search and download free 3D objects and scenes, and edit them using Google’s apps like Tilt Brush and Blocks. The platform supports OBJ file format.

Poly can be of great help to developers creating VR and AR apps and using platforms like Google’s ARCore and Apple’s ARKit. The 3D object library seems to be in direct competition with Remix 3D, but the two can also go in harmony. Remix 3D also supports OBJ file format among others, so it would be possible to re-upload 3D objects from Poly on Microsoft’s platform and vice-versa.

Google’s 3D object sharing platform isn’t a barren land for everyday users; they can browse everything from a rocket ship to an ice-cream cone and create beautiful GIFs out them which can be used elsewhere.
