Sketchfab launches Public Domain Dedication for 3D cultural heritage

Museums using Sketchfab can now reach out to wider audience by uploading 3D models of exhibits to Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication (CC0).

The new open access programmes allows many organisations to share their 3D data more openly, which is a first for many. Sketchfab currently is collaborating with 27 cultural organisations from 13 different countries.

This initiative is expected to make cultural heritage more accessible to a wider audience for study, reuse and rethinking of the models displayed. Museums, galleries and archives are invited to join the programme.

To take part in the initiative, log on to Sketchfab.
