Model Sharing Libraries

 100+ Model Sharing Libraries

 

      Below is a list of 112 Model Sharing Libraries that we found on the internet so far.  If you know of any that we’ve missed, please let us know.  Also, let us know about any updates to the libraries we’ve listed here.  As you can see, there are some holes in our data.  We’ve tried to make it as complete as possible, but the some of the file download formats were hard to determine for one reason or another, mostly because you have to login to the site to download and then you can see what format(s) they use, but we had to, at this time, pass up registering at most of the sites.

      In the list of libraries below, the field “Specialty” means; does their library have a file specialty?  And the term “Various” means that their library covers virtually any and all topics.  Where as “Miscellaneous” means their library specializes in a limited number of categories, but has no main theme.  Under the column “Formats”, “Various” means that files can be downloaded in more that 4 or more file types (too many to list), but usually not every file can be downloaded in each and every file format the site supports.  Example: File “One” might be downloadable in .max or .obj, while file “Two” can be downloaded in .max or .stl formats.

      Also, in the list file sharing libraries below there are two (2) main library types.  A “CAD” type of site, where the downloadable files are 3D CAD files and are aimed at any 3-Dimensional use.  These files will need some tweaking to use with 3D printers.  The “3DP” libraries have files that are already designed to be 3D printed or at least are intended for that use.

     We’ll try to keep the data current, but there are no guarantees that the information provided in the list below is always up-to-date or that all the sites are even still in existence.  But, we’ll delete any we find have closed down.  Also, we make no claim against the safety of using any of these links.  We will do the best we can, but use them at your own risk and be sure you have taken all proper safe guards against possible malware.  Which is just good advice anytime.  Thank you for using this list.
