About us
A little bit of history about our company...

Mesh Factory has been an industry leader in stock 3d content and custom 3d model creation for 20 years now. You may have seen our work on TV, in magazines, on movie posters, in pilot training courseware, or maybe even in your favorite light simulator. We invite you to read on if you would like to learn more about why we have maintained such a strong presence in the 3d industry for so long.

Our Experience

We have worked on over 900 separate 3d model projects over the course of 20 years. Through all of that work and time spent, we know 3d modeling like no one else. Our output is clean, efficient, and of course, always error free. Try us out and see what two decades of hands-on experience looks like!

Research Opportunities

Whenever possible, we interact with our real-life subject matter before we begin to build. We have been extremely lucky to have maintained working relationships with many businesses and military organizations that allow us access to some of our unique 3d model subjects. Can our competitors say the same?

We Avoid Gimmicks

Gimmicks are a slight-of-hand tricks businesses play on their customers. We don't believe the idea of gimmicky icons to lure customers into a false sense of security about "industry standards" is smart business. There is no such thing as "industry standards" in the 3d model marketplace. It's a myth. As a 3d modeler, you either output high quality, accurate content, or you don't. That's why we let the quality of our work speak for itself, concentrate on model creation, and forego the chess game.

We Value Our Customers

When a customer asks for support, we drop EVERYTHING! We don't do India call centers, or tiered technical support. Our customers are our livelihood and we are here to help 24/7. Contacting us means a reply is coming from a skilled and experienced 3d artist. Customer satisfaction is not a thing of the past around here...we're just old-school like that...

We're a Diamond Level seller on Turbosquid!

SH-60F Ocean Hawk Rework

By On Friday November 17, 2017

sh-60-f-ocean-hawk

George Lucas once said many of his films were never finished. From his perspective as a director/screenwriter, they were developed to the point where he had run out of time alotted and mercilessly abandoned. While I realize I will never possess the vision of George, I think I understand what he was talking about as I explore my own life’s work. Due to the sheer number of projects I’ve taken on over the years, it’s an unavoidable reality that many of my 3d projects are developed to a point where I feel I need to make an executive decision to stop the process and move on to the next subject. If I didn’t accept and act upon that realization, I know the result would be my being stuck on one model subject, super-detailing it to death, and getting absolutely nothing else done for the span of many months. While it […]

LAV-AT USMC Desert Build

By On Tuesday November 7, 2017

lav-at-usmc-desert

In an effort to fill out the LAV Piranha series of 3d models, here’s the build history on the new LAV-AT USMC desert variant. The “AT” variant is an Anti-Tank TOW missile equipped Piranha. Military.com states, “…The LAV-AT anti-tank missile carrier is a mobile system is capable of defeating main battle tanks and fixed fortifications…” After a bit of research, the subject I chose for this project was from the 1st Light Armor Reconnaissance (LAR) Battalion, United States Marine Corps (USMC) dubbed “Hammer of Gods” from Operation Desert Storm, 1991. Markings are Desert Sand (Federal Standard #33531) which was a new look for US armor at the time of Desert Storm. All LAVs were, at that time, painted in 3 color NATO camouflage primarily meant for deployment in a much “greener” Europe. Since I’ve already built an LAV-AT in NATO 3-color camouflage, I used that geometry as a base from which to […]

M2 Bradley IFV Build

By On Wednesday November 1, 2017

m2-bradley-ifv-build-3d-model

Here is the next subject to fill out our selection of modern tracked armor models. This one is the M2 Bradley IFV which will likely become available in at least two different exterior paint schemes. Throughout its service life the M2 Bradley IFV series has been updated to improve combat capabilities and survivability for both the vehicle and it’s occupants. According to Military-Today.com, there were three main improvement programs, the M2A1, M2A2 and M2A3, so this subject can be a challenge to model accurately, unless one pays very close attention to the details. After several weeks of dedicated work on this one, I was compelled to abandon it for a time while focusing on much needed website and database changes to improve our company’s internet presence. Quite soon, I’ll be re-focusing on continuing work on this one, which should lead to other, even newer Bradley variants!
