Recommended 3D Model Repositories

There are several accessible and community-driven online repositories of Open Source 3D printer models and projects. We recommend using them over others as they not only allow the open source/open hardware/Free & Libre community to continue to innovate.



Github is mainly known for serving as an online repository for code. Recent functionality has allowed for the rendering of uploaded STL files.



Repables is another growing site with a lot of community support



Youmagine has a large amount of 3D models, and a community originally established around the European community of 3D printer users.



Yeggi is a website that is aiming to be a 3D model search engine/index that gathers models from many of the online 3D model communities.
