Several individuals and 3D groups here on DeviantArt have tried to launch their own chats, which have met with various degrees of success, staying active for a while then dying.
Currently, there really aren't any active chatroom where you can discuss and get help on 3D work.
This chatroom doesn't advertise any specific groups, and will hopefully become a hub for all 3D artists, and use members from many different groups to administrate and keep it active.
Loaded up the top are various useful articles, tutorials and resources so that you can still get help and inspiration even when there's nobody else there.
We're also looking to add mentors, experienced 3D artists willing to give critique and advice in real time chat!Cymae
's looking for some active people willing to join in the chat and help moderate it.
Come have a look!
