find and download free low poly models
A web platform that lets users search, preview and download thousands of low poly CC-BY and CC0 models. All models are free and hand picked, ready for use in games and other 3D projects.
The site features:
- User accounts (likes, comments, lists, email verification etc)
- Model uploading, conversion and admin backend
- Realtime model preview with animations (that’s faster than sketchfab)
- Patreon like donation system
- Model bundles (aka fancy lists)
- Affiliate ad serving system
- Search with filters + ranking system
- API + docs
- Custom CMS + newsletter system
- Lots of little things i’m probably forgetting (it’s a big boy)
Just me, and thousands of talented 3D artists who have uploaded their models to the site.
React, tailwind and MUI on the front end. Node, Express and Mongo on the back end. After.js is used for SSR (similar to next.js).
Hosted on a VPS that I manage using docker + caprover.
