In this article, I will introduce a 3D model material website called ‘Artist 3D Model’. I will explain what you can find in this website, how to search for 3D models, and how to download free 3D models. After that, I will import the model to STYLY and check how it looks.
What is Artist 3D Model?
Artist 3D Model is a 3D model website that is completely free. Users can download 3D models they can use for free, so I hope you try it out!
The Artist 3D Model official page can be accessed from here.
But the website is slightly complicated, and those that are new to the site may have trouble trying to search for 3D models and downloading, so i will explain the steps.
About Artist 3D Model
There are the following categories.
- Red bordered・・・Type category button(3D Model, Digital art, Art software, Animation, Fine art)
- Yellow Bordered・・・Model category button (Architecture, Nature, Funiture, Accessory, Tutorial, etc…)
- Blue Bordered・・・Technical category button(New model, Best monthly model, etc…)
- Green bordered・・・Uploaded 3D model
When searching for a 3D model, you need to press the yellow category button.
From the left, the categories are Architecture, Human body, Transport, Nature, Military, Accessory, Furniture, and Software tutorial.
You can find many tutorials for 3D software such as 3dsMax, Maya, Photoshop, Illustrator, Blender, ZBrush, and AutoCAD in the software tutorial category.
You may even be able to find new useful tips not in textbooks.But please take care to check the software version of the tutorial.
For the blue borders, from the top, the categories are New models, Hall of fame, Model widget, Monthly best model, 3D book store, and Software shop. But currently, 3D book store and software shop is unavailable.(As in 2019/08/23)
In the Digital Arts tab, 2D wallpapers and background pictures, graphic designs created using 3D software are uploaded.
From the left, the categories are Fantasy, Surreal, Science Fiction, Abstract, Nature, Electronic, 3D art, Photoshop, Pixel art, Mixed media, and Pop art.
In Art Software, you can search for softwares.
You can search by clicking the needed tabs from the yellow border, but I recommend using the search box in the red border.
I searched using the below conditions.
Software Type: 3D Software
Free or Trial: Freeware
Filter: Top Rated
Mixamo showed up as a result.
The Software Type becomes the yellow border, so please try out the best search method for you.
In Animation, there are the following tabs starting from the left, Wallpaper with animation, Interactive wallpaper, Game, Monthly calendar, desktop clock, and web design tools.
Downloading a model from Artist 3D Model
Then, let’s download a free 3D model.
Go to 3D models＞Transport
I will download the brown car model in the 1st page of the red border.
The download button is very small, or rather, it is almost hidden in the description part, but try clicking
Download: free (.obj) OBJ file: Transportation Objects/luxury-car-f.zip
in bold font. The download will not start if you click the same letters not in bold font.
By the way, the downloaded data had all of the following.
Importing the downloaded model to STYLY
After the 3D model is ready, let’s upload it to STYLY and check the result.
Log in to STYLY, and create a scene.
If you do not have a STYLY account, you can create one from here
Upload the downloaded file to STYLY.
If you are unsure how to upload the file, please refer to this article.
Follow the directions in the image ①＞②.
For this tutorial, I imported all jpeg, OBJ, and MTL data.
Once the model is uploaded, click the model in My Models.
I adjusted the size and position, and the result became like this.
Example view from above. The texture is slightly transparent, but the scars are displayed properly.
How was my article?
The website is slightly complicated, but you can download any model using the steps I described.
The uploaded models are chaotic, and hard to search for, but you might be able to find a lucky find.
