*Inclusion in this list does not in any way represent endorsement by any of the companies mentioned or any of their employees. All member’s opinions are their own and not the views of their employer.

3D-PRO is a private community only accessible via an invitation/endorsement from an existing member. This restricted membership mechanism has allowed 3D-PRO to slowly, but steadily grow over 21 years without sacrificing the quality and close-knit community feel of 3D-PRO membership.

The friendly & helpful atmosphere and very low noise/high substance ratio make 3D-PRO an excellent discussion list which has proven to be a valuable resource for the professional 3D, CG, FX, and Animation community for over two decades.

3D-PRO is used in a variety of ways, including industry networking, announcements, job postings, 3D/CG related discussion including hardware, software, techniques, technical issues, problem-solving, beta testing, and more.

Our community currently has (or has previously had) a presence on social media including: LinkedIn, Facebook, Reddit, Google Wave, Google Groups, Twitter, and elsewhere. We have also had local community meet-ups around the globe (which we will do more of).

The core of our communication now takes place at list.3dpro.org which, as of our transition to a subscription model, is now the official standard used to determine 3D-PRO membership.
