A Short History


Welcome to our blog. To start we would like to give a short history of FormFonts. In 2002 with a grant from SketchUp and at the California State University San Luis Obispo Fred Abler started a website called Objective Networks as a place for SketchUp artists to upload their models to share and download models made by others. Artists uploaded 1,000s of 3D models of cars, furniture, people, trees, plants and more. It was a success. With that success came the issue of maintaining quality and paying for the web site’s maintenance.

What to do? Close the site down, have advertisements or start a paid-for site? Fred along with the most excellent SketchUp artists chose to start FormFonts. The site went live in November of 2004 and has posted tens of 1000s of high-quality low polygon 3D models on a subscription basis.
