30 of The Best Free 3D Models on CGTrader
You can't buy everything - and sometimes, you don't even need to! The great artists in our community often upload free models to give people a taste of their skill. We wanted to make a list of the best free models on CGTrader and we had a hard time doing it - you have uploaded so many free models! But we huffed and we puffed and we made this list of 30 best free 3D models!
1. AKM - Model and Textures by chamferzone
No modern day FPS game can do without an AK-type weapon. And this AKM low poly gun rivals Call of Duty and Crysis in detail, as well as texture, while being totally free!
2. Mask boy by runsystem
Mask boy is just the iconic character your mobile game needs! So if you’re making a Diablo clone/something akin to Torchlight, look no further!
3. MK2 Grenade - Models and Textures by chamferzone
The humble classical MK2 Grenade, also called “the pineapple”. Only the Stielhandgranate comes close to it’s iconic status. You wouldn’t want your FPS game to have unpopular grenades, would you?
4. khelifaoui k-motor v6 bi-turbo by khelifaouiamma
I am no expert in motors, but I’m sure that a smart developer could find a use for this asset. It might be a tad too intense in polygon budget for most games, but that’s a challenge for you!
5. Cow hi-res by davidbjoker
A free high-resolution cow model for your VR cow tipping simulator. Come on, HTC Vive comes with the controllers for a reason!
6. Little fairy by runsystem
This little fairy is ready to fire arrow after arrow in whatever fantasy scene you put her!
7. VEG-03 Spaceship by matkovsi_dragos
This ship will look great in any space scene render, as long as you’re trying to depict the good life, that is! This baby is perfect for cruising the stars and looking cool!
8.Triceratops by fabelar
When life gives you an extremely detailed triceratops model, make a dinosaur hunting game. Or a dinosaur riding game!
9. Furniture Model pack 1 by 3dstylish
This free furniture model pack will make you feel like you’re playing Sims again. Is this… is this how being an interior decorator feels like? Pushing furniture around like you’re a Sims player?
10. Sword of Artorias by samize
If you want to pay a tribute to knight Artorias and his heroic deeds that may or may not have caused much of the horror in Dark Souls, this is the free model for you. Make sure to import it into Counter-Strike!
11. Kurven Chair by lostinsight
Real chairs have curves, am I right? They also have a lot of polygons to make them look - make sure the rest of the interior matches up!
12. Color Glass by ktsbuinamcuong
13. Casual Male Walking Pose by mark_florquin
I’m going to say that this is a very realistic character model. The man just looks so natural! Stick into your architectural visualization instead of some horrible 2D sprite.
14. Floor WITHOUT PLUGINS by notfun
Well, you obviously need a floor for you house, and this one comes already tiled and textured!
15. Free Scifi fighter by CGPitbull
If you have a space ship game, you have to have space fighters. And if you’re doing human space fighters, well, they have to be blocky and gray or blue colored. That’s the law!
16. Eyeball by Alexander_Lashko
This free, game-ready model of an eyeball is marketed to crows, who will peck at the screen to get it!
17. Green apples by modelplusmodel
This 3D model of apples will look good in just about any interior scene. The textures are so realistic, you just want to bite it!
18. Landscape lamps Artemide Dioscuri tavolo by phenom_arch
19. White and Yellow Chairs by spyro25
20. GAZ- AA furgon-Bread by urecky
No survival horror game set in Soviet Russia can do without this high quality (yet low poly) model of a bread truck! The texture work is simply amazing.
21. Decorative set of dressing table by palin_l
What kind of architectural or interior artist would live the tables bare and without any detail? But have no fear, this set of decorative dressings is here (and free)!
22. XfrogPlants Eastern Hemlock 2 by xfrog
Truth be told, I can’t think of a way to use a hemlock model. But maybe there are plant 3D model connoisseurs who would find a nice for it!
23. Chocolate Cookie Sample by mark_florquin
This low polygon, high calorie treat is heartbreaking. It looks so good, but it’s only a very well made 3D model. So sad!
24. Clothes Peg by limonadinis
You need clothes pegs? We have clothes pegs. These are the highest quality clothes peg models you will ever see!
25. Armchair by 3dengine
This is an arm chair for a future super-villain who is maintaining a link to the past and to the classics. It will also look good in your architectural interior, I guess, but it’s really meant for a volcano lair!
26. Benches by zedman
27. Hosta Plant Hosta kiyosumiensis by cgaxis
This is a popular decorative plant that comes from Asia and is edible (Note: do not take nutrition advice from articles on 3D models). It will look great outside of that house you’re modeling!
28. Dinning Table Chair by design21
So you’re designing a dining room, you put in a nice table, but your asset library lacks a nice dining table chair model! What do you do? Well, you grab this free model, duh!
29. Free 3D Models - Kai Design Studio by kaidesign
When you need bits and bobs to inhabit your architectural interiors, look no further than this set. I mean, who doesn’t want to have a bar globe?
30. Wooden Floor 26 by notfun
Here you go, some floors with three materials and textures. That’s probably more than I have back home. Ah, the wonderous life of VR...
Tell us what you think!
