This page will collect various freebies offered by this blog:
1. Prehistoric trilobite.
Here’s a free .OBJ conversion of a free Maya .MB trilobite. Thanks to Jonathan Price, who made the original 3D body and organs in conjunction with his ‘Current Topics in Earth Science’ class at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 2003. Jonathan wrote that the original model… “features the basic properties evident in the species but no specifics of any of the many subspecies and is as anatomically accurate as possible, based on current knowledge”.
New legs and fins have been added, as per a scientific illustration, as well as the correct material zones applied to the model. Not for redistribution or re-sale, please, as per the original model. Non-commercial use only, with credits.
I’ve also included some possible .jpg textures which are Creative Commons Attribution, taken from the Sintel ‘open movie’ made by the Blender Foundation. The material zones are correctly set up on the model, so you should be able to just drag and drop these to quickly texture it. Use of these textures will require you to credit “The Blender Foundation” on or near your pictures.

2. Retro three-wheeler car.
A cute retro car, an .OBJ conversion of a public domain CC-Zero Blender .BLEND model. The original was nice, but had no material zones. I’ve added these, which means that now you can easily drag-and-drop new materials. Commercial use of your renders is fine by me.
