Is there an open source, or otherwise free, object/material/mesh/model online library that exists? Where all the content is free and anyone can contribute?
I have one for low poly modes. Blender-games.webs.com
blendernation put up a link a while back to a site where someone had made a huge list of 3d model sites. i’ll try to find it.
EDIT: Here it is. http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/60-excellent-free-3d-model-websites/
it would be nice to have a blender 3d assets website, sort of like google 3d warehouse.http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/.
Not everything is free but you can find pretty much everything there. A lot of it is free and it has a huge library and in depth search engine
google warehouse is great, its just importing and expoting thats hard.
You can also visit www.sharecg.com and do a search by licenses. Choose Unrestricted. There is a lot of stuff there and you can specify file format and category.
thanks guys for the links .
also … www.3dup.com - this site is small but there are some gems here.
