    You need a Biology section.

    Hi @intervoke - I think Nature or Science should be sufficient?

    I confess a degree of bias on this matter but for me, intervoke is on the right lines here.

    Much of the science related material on Sketchfab is centered on natural subjects for which the category Nature & Plants is descriptively insufficient.

    In my experience, most science is more related to the natural world than it is to man made technology. Some examples - anatomy, archaeology, astronomy, biology, chemistry, geography, geology, oceanography, paleontology and zoology.

    In my opinion, a more representative category split would be Science & Nature and Technology & Engineering.

    Isn't "Entertainment" or "Film" a useful category? Thinking of recreating models from films or tv-series specifically, If I would, say for an example, create a sword from a film, where would I put it?

    @ludwigher Thanks for the feedback, I'm passing it on to the team. We're still discussing how to handle more category changes.

    Good idea to streamline categories as it helps narrow down when one has to search or explore.

    I would like to ask if there is a way one could search or explore, using two or three categories for models that span across two or three categories.

    And @strick67, Science & Nature and Nature & Plant categories seem like the same to me.

    How about a concept art section?

    @distance880 Do you have an example model that doesn't fit into any of the other categories?

    Well, I wouldn't say that specifically. I have a bunch of models that fit into the other categories 'poorly'. Mostly stuff intended for other artists to use. What's the best category for showing of PBR material sets or textures?

    Hmm I see. I guess we don't have a good solution for that at the moment. I'll pass on the feedback and see how we can improve.
