Car Model Repository


Car libraryHere 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!

After importing the models, you will have to work on the materials, since all of them come without any pre-configured materials or colors. The library is divided into five categories:

  • Automobiles
  • Military
  • Sport cars
  • Fire-Rescue-Police
  • Trucks

Here is how the models look like in Blender:

Models into Blender

If you want to download the models, visit this link. This is a very good resource for anyone working with architectural visualization.


  1. I just downloaded the Panzer II.

    While the console doesn't complain of any import warnings or errors, the tank doesn't seem to be whole.... Oh well

  2. Elite2864- don't dismiss this source so quickly.

    I just downloaded an F1 car that not only was separated into several meshes, but came with jpegs to texture them with.

    It's a pretty nice model for free.

  3. Just for precision:
    the models are on various external sites. They differ in quality, in mesh structure and in texturing. They also have different licenses. We can refer to the original site or the readme.txt that comes with the model when we're lucky enough to find them.


  4. And now to something completely different:

    If I turn off Javascript strange links appear at the end of this page (all linking to What's this all about? Pushing the Pagerank for that Site?

  5. may b e you news posting guys FIRST check with the site owner about traffic etc.
    because almost every car i click i become a Service Unavailable error.
    same thing at Guide on Blender Fluid Simulator's Parameters. there ill get

    Traffico temporaneamente bloccato

    Il traffico verso questo sito web è stato temporaneamente bloccato perchè è stata superata la quota mensile assegnata all'account pkblender pari a 10 GBytes, il sito sarà nuovamente accessibile a partire dal primo giorno del prossimo mese.

  6. @guest: yeah, that blows, I agree. Try again in a few days. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the time to check with everyone before posting a story. We'd never get anything done!

  7. If someone can't afford the $5 a month for half-decent hosting, let them be busted. BUT: also take offline the corresponding article then ;)

  8. I also found those models quite good... even if they don't have materials, the meshes are well made, so you can easily select one vertex from the left door, SHIFT+L, and you have the whole left door (without the glass) selected, so applying materials goes quite fast.

  9. Of course not since they are in LWO format which is LightWave3D format.
    Just as any other format you have to import them into a .blend file.
    Go to File>Import>LightWave(lwo)... , find your file and click LMB on it then LMB on the 'Import LW' button.


  10. Something else to consider...

    There is a tool available called AccuTrans 3D ( I use this tool to open the LWO file (shows all the colors and UV textures) and then save the file back with various options that separate each material into it's own object. Make the Import process into Blender SOOOO much easier...

    My $0.02,

  11. That is a great website!! but I have great ideas of games, suspensions, 3rd person cameras, multiplayer, HELP!! could anyone point me towards (not just any) good tutorials that will show me how to carry out the required scripting etc. to fulfill these ideas?
