Become an author

Join the Orbolt community and become a smart 3D asset author. Set your own prices and let Orbolt deliver your assets to the world.

Smart 3D assets can be authored using either a commercial version of Houdini or the non-commercial Apprentice edition. This way, any artist with a good idea for an asset can easily make their work available.

Becoming an author is as easy as creating an account. You can login using an existing Facebook or OpenID account (Google, Yahoo) or register directly through Orbolt.

Create assets that can load into other digital content creation applications such as Autodesk® Maya®, Unity® and more!

You can also view the Asset Requests to see what other users are looking for and create assets based on their requirements.

Once you're logged in, read through the Asset Guidelines to make sure your asset is up to code and then upload for review. Begin Uploading an Asset!
