Get stock 3D models and materials from BlendFab

Originally posted on 7 July 2019. Since then, Blendfab became a commercial resource, then closed.

Latvian architectural visualisation firm Indizains has launched BlendFab, a library of over 800 free online Blender models and materials.

The files are licensed for commercial use, providing you credit the source.

Over 800 free visualisation models and real-world materials, provided as .blend files
The assets on BlendFab are also geared towards visualisation work, and include 3D models of furniture, plus fittings like taps and sinks, based on real-world brands.

There are also some nice 3D vegetation models: both trees and pot plants.

The library also features a set of PBR materials, again some based on real-world architectural products, plus more generic wood and fabric materials.

The models were first released earlier this year via Indizains’ own website, but have since moved to a dedicated site of their own.

At the time, there were 797 assets, but that didn’t include the materials, so the total must now be comfortably over 800. More new assets are being added steadily.

Updated 25 August 2019: BlendFab is now up to over 2,000 free assets.

The developers have also released BlendFab Synchronized Asset Manager, a paid product that automatically syncs the resources on the site with your local PC.

Updated 2 July 2020: BlendFab has now become a commercial service. Access to its asset libraries costs €50/year, or a one-off payment of €200. Visitors can also buy individual 3D models via a new online store.

Updated 22 December 2020: BlendFab has now been shut down.
