Pouln Posted July 27, 2020 Share Posted July 27, 2020 Venturing out in this new world requires you to take a big step. In order to be able to make a 3D print, you need a 3D design. There are a number of sites where you can find downloadable 3D designs. I started this topic as a placeholder for a list of sites where you may be able to find a design that fits your need. most sites also undertake to help you further with Q&A sections and tutorials. http://www.thingiverse.com - free designs http://www.myminifactory.com - as can be expected, designs of minis for games http://www.youmagine.com - many free to download designs http://www.cults3d.com - free and paid designs http://www.pinshape.com - free and paid designs http://www.yeggi.com- a search engine for 3d models http://www.turbosquid.com - paid designs - some free, many not allowed to print http://grabcad.com - free designs http://www.cgtrader.com - paid designs http://clara.io/library - free designs http://www.prusaprinters.org - free designs http://www.tinkercad.com - free designs https://nasa3d.arc.nasa.gov/models/printable - Nasa repository of 3d files https://3Dexport.com - free and paid designs https://www.3dagogo.com - free and paid designs https://3dprint.nih.gov/ - bio medical models https://www.gambody.com/search - wide range of (mostly) paid designs http://wargaming3d.com/ - aimed at war gaming https://fab365.net/ - all kind of models, mostly paid but some are free https://www.heroforge.com/ - aimed at fantasy figures - paid designs https://www.scetchfab.com - Other sources: As museums are increasingly digitising their collections you may find good quality scans of original artefacts ideal for modelling e.g. Smithsonian 3D collection includes a downloadable Bell X-1 https://3d.si.edu/object/3d/bell-x-1:6c69a6bb-55e6-4356-8725-120ff7f8d652 an Apollo capsule and many fossils which could be fascinating model subjects Other option is a search facility for 3D designs. here is one: https://www.stlfinder.com I’m sure there are more, so feel free to add them in a reply. I will add them to this opening post so that it can serve as a (hopefully) handy resource. 5 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
