Yes! A batch of new features has arrived, but first, to celebrate this release we've made a new video about Mastering Textures and Materials with p3d.in, featuring a fantastic Costarrican accent!
Watch it to the end and we're sure you'll learn at least a bit about p3d.in's old and new features like glow, detail and reflection maps!

Reflection Maps PLUS
Reflection maps are a fantastic way to add realism to many materials. They help integrate a model with an environment of reflections and light and improve the sense of 3D.

Glow Maps PLUS
p3d.in just got all Tron like! A highly requested feature, the glow map support allows for all kinds of emissive lighting effects on your models
Scientists know it: glow makes everything better
A stronger level of privacy than the usual Unlisted and Public options has been added. Private is very simple, for now only you can see your own models. We will add more advanced functionality in the following releases!
Visiting the public gallery is now more exciting! We tweaked it so it shows more varied results (and more models).
While working on a model you usually keep adding more materials to it. If you updated an existing model on p3d.in with a newer model you may have noticed a little misbehaving. Now p3d.in will do it's magic to try and keep all the existing materials in their right place.
Improved .mtl Support
Another round of .mtl improvements means better support for your favorite application. Thanks go to all of you who have taken the time to report issues!
Descriptions Visible by Default
When you write something for your model you want people to actually read it! We got the message and enabled the model descriptions by default.
We hope this update makes your life as a 3D artist easier!
