What a YEAR! 13 of our favorite 2013 models.

Happy New Year!!  And what a year it's been: lots of updates, new apps, and (most fun for us...) lots of models from the community!

We decided to put together a short list of 13 highlights - some of the most popular models, and others that got passed around in some @autodesk.com emails.  It was pretty difficult, there have been so many great ones!

We could make 13 more of these lists and still not get to all our favorites.  Thanks so much to everyone for using the apps and we hope you have a great New Year!

From the 123D Gallery: Pig Monster from Amnesia by Amanda Jackson

When we heard about the Steam release of the horror game mashup, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, something seemed familiar...  Then we remembered this great model by 123D Creature user Amanda Jackson back in March.   

Have you played it yet??

The title is a teeny bit of a fib this time since we didn't have this post last week. But it is back! Catches are becoming the most common thing in the gallery as of late and they're getting better and better.

One day later than normal, and I'd like to show you guys some of the catches we've gotten for our Steal Public Art challenge! We've extended the challenge until the 5th of August so you've still got lots of time to get some excellent catches and maybe win a 3D camera or a 3D print!

While we're a bit heavy on the t-rex heads this week, that is never a bad thing. Also, this post includes the most fantastic catch of a rock I have ever seen. Bravo!
