3D modeling
4
Hello, everyone! Materialise has published an article on publicly available 3D model repositories, so I thought I’d share the information here.
PREVIEW
This compilation includes dedicated 3D printing repositories, as well as sites with 3D designs not meant for 3D printing. Then again, the latter can always be converted into 3D printable files, so we’ll include them here.
Here goes:

Cults 3D

Cults 3D offers a wide variety of 3D models, from amateur designs to high quality, professionally made ones. Available models are assigned to different categories – fashion, art, jewelry, architecture, gadgets and so on. The combination of a modern visual user interface, well-organized database and sorting by popularity, usefulness, etc. makes the site easy to use. Some models are available for free, but most are distributed on a pay per download basis.

GrabCAD is somewhat different from abovementioned resources. This site mainly offers technical and engineering designs not meant for 3D printing per se. The repository can be filtered not only by categories, but by software used to create particular projects. This resource is meant primarily for engineering-oriented users. Authorization is required in order to access the repository and download files. Although 3D models are not ready to be 3D printed, there is plenty of interesting stuff to be downloaded and converted into printable designs.

Most of projects on TurboSquid are not meant to be 3D printed as offered, but some 3D printable models can be found through search filters. I’ve managed to locate 2117 STL files. Another thing is that all of the designs require payment. Still, it shouldn’t be excluded from the list, as there are a lot of 3D models available, with some of them ready to be printed, while the rest can be processed.
