3D model search engine

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).

Here's the link: http://www.yobi3d.com

Thanks for the info. I see a few issues:
- all models seem to be untextured and unrigged.
- search results seem a bit random
- you get no license info

thanks for the feedback.

1. Models seem untextured and unrigged on the site, but the original files may have those information. We're working on getting them shown.

2. Search results can be random, because we do not have that many models that matches your keyword. Try "chair".

3. We're working on providing a filter for license info.
