About the creator
Creating 3D assets has been a hobby of mine for a few years. I have noticed that public domain 3D models aren't really a thing. There can be situations where giving appropriate credit is difficult. So CC0 license would be the only way to go. I have been in this situation many times and it gave me the idea to create this 3D model website.
As an indie game developer myself. I try to aim more for game developers' needs. If you use Unity, remember to also check free 3d models for unity from the Unity Asset Store, which are to my knowledge also credit/attribution free.
3DModelsCC0 will publish a new set of content almost every week. Though the amount may vary. 3D objects will be made mostly for game developers but can be used by anyone in many other ways. I will try to create content that isn't too specific and can be used in as many projects as possible. For example, I will create more free 3D character models when I have time, but they have to be something pretty standard like soldiers or racing drivers. You shouldn't expect anything like a cyborg with a bionic hand with a grappling hook attached. You can also suggest me 3D models to add to the collection by writing me an email.
As a new feature, it is now possible for visitors to upload their own models for 3DModelsCC0.

3D Modeling Software
All the 3D models currently on the site are made using Cinema 4D and Blender. I strongly recommend Blender for everyone as it is completely free.
All the free 3D files on this site are in the "universal" .obj file format or if they contain multiple objects then they are in .fbx. These are supported by pretty much every 3D software out there. Blender, C4D, 3D Max, Unity, Unreal Engine etc.
All of the new 3D content will be in 2K resolution and in .png -format. However, You may find some of my older models with 4K textures.
Textures and .obj files are compressed in a .rar package. If you don't have it already I suggest you download and install WinRAR or equivalent to export these files.
