You can now directly search and download hundreds of thousands of Creative Commons models with the new importer addon!
Models can be searched by keyword(s) or browsed. The addon then presents thumbnails of suitable results and each one can be called up on Sketchfab.com for a full 3D preview if desired before downloading directly into Blender.
Materials and textures are loaded in automatically and Cycles node networks are generated so the download is immediately ready to render.
The addon is currently available in Beta and we welcome your feedback on the current build. We have included a “Report an issue” button in the addon and hope you will help us iron out the final few wrinkles. Note that the addon is compatible with Blender 2.79. A version for Blender 2.80 will be released later this year.
