Hello all, we launched a 3D model search engine, which finds 3D models on the Internet with simple keyword search. The models can be previewed right on your browser without any plugins! (Chrome and Firefox recommended).
Very cool, thanks for making this! It will definitely come in handy!
I know you have to cover yourself against everything (there are a lot of wacko’s out there), but the thought of “bodily harm or death” from a 3d model search engine got me thinking of how this could ever really happen in real life. All I could come up with is maybe being electrocuted by your computer while browsing the web page, or browsing the page while driving… Although I wouldn’t be surprised to hear a story of someone deciding to sue the search engine over something like this, there have been some really crazy lawsuits going on recently!
Btw, we have the filters implemented. On the search result screen, there’s a triangle next to the search box. Click on the button, you’ll see a list of filter you can choose from, e.g. file type, vertices, polygons count.
