You never know who might show up in Schroon Lake. This past weekend we hosted our good friends Albon Denoyel, his wife Victoria and newborn son William. Albon is the Co-Founder and CEO of a tech start up, Sketchfab, which has deals with some huge teach giants.
Sketch Fab has invented a very easy way to 3-D model just about anything – in just a few easy steps – not the hours it took in bygone years. So while visiting the the Paradox Brewery, Albon couldn’t resist making a 3-D model of the Paradox Beer Bear, using his iPhone 6. Take a tour of the bear by pressing the play button and using your mouse to check out the bear in detail. If you have a touch screen device, you can zoom into certain areas with the "pinch" move.
Albon's business started in Paris in 2012 and now has an office in midtown Manhattan. Their philosophy is simple.
“We were frustrated to see so many artists spending hours on making great 3D models, but ending up sharing dull screenshots as there was no better solution to showcase their work,” Albon says.
“WebGL, the first open standard to display 3D graphics in a browser, had recently been released, so it was the perfect timing to start building the best platform to share 3D designs. Our community quickly grew to where we are now, a fruitful mix of artists, designers, architects, engineers, brands, museums, schools and more”.
