The Virtual Museum of Computers in Ciudad Real, Spain, offers a walk through the history of computers. Next to their display of a cool array of old computers, they have also created a virtual walkthrough, using Blender in the process. And guess what: they’re offering .blend files of all their models under a Creative Commons license. I talked to the technical director of the project, Carlos GonzÃ¡lez Morcillo, who explained how they used Blender.
I was in need of a snow material for a current project when I remembered the Blender Materials site. I hadn’t been there in quite a while and I found exactly what I needed for this project. It saved me a lot of time. There’s quite an impressive collection of FREE materials. I also noticed on thier home page that they have celebrated their first anniversary this month. So Congratulations and hats off to you all at Blender Materials for an outstanding job and collection.
Oooh, I love Doctor Who! I recently came across a modest Dr. Who model repository called ‘BlenderWho’ (a Tardis, the Seal of Rassilon and a whole bunch of Daleks) so I just HAD to share it here ;-) Does anyone know when the next season will begin, by the way?
CG-India.com features set of 21 3D models that are free for any type of use.
Here is another great model repository, now with a lot of car models. The DMI car 3d models are all available freely for download, in the LWO file format. That is fully compatible with Blender!
Would you like to download some free cutout images of trees and people? Well, now you can! The guys of a studio called Vyonyx, just made available a lot of these images for download. Besides the trees and people, they have free textures too.
