OP truly is an angel.
This thread must live dammit.
This might not be quiet the treasure trove that other things are, but might still be useful:
-Requires you to create an account, and it doesn't have normal/displacement/roughness/etc... maps, so you'll have to generate those on your own.

This thread needs to live.
This should be stickied because it is too valuable a resource for new people to let die.
Thanks op!

Found this program today, also for texturing/materials.


One image is enough to make normal map/ao/edge/etc

Very easy to use and free

maybe sticky?
This should be a sticky
This program is for modeling but might be useful for UVW mapping
thanks for this thread
This thread is too precious to die

This program is pretty useful for space scenes. With a little work outside the program on your own its stupidly easy to make things that are better than that blender guru guys 200 dollar plugin for space scenes

Public domain textures and references. Doesn't come with different maps but if you pair with what >>646991 posted you can easily make all the maps you need pretty easily.

open source Photoshop in your browser. doesnt need installing or downloading. exports in psd and all other fancy formats you might need. you can even get in touch with the creators and ask them to implement a feature that you dont yet see.

this a comfy thread

Thanks for the assets! Some of these guys have even more free stuff on their gumroad store pages too.


Maybe it would be worth the effort to search for free stuff on eg. Artstation, then explore the gumroad pages that get linked to to find more hidden goodies.
sharing some of my bookmarks

Some more free kitbash

Bumping because I can.

Textures for interior or exterior only. Free accounts can download 15 textures per day and only diffuse, but you can combine it with Materialize (the texture2material software posted in this thread) to make the normal, AO, edge and other maps.
I miss CGtextures.com
Free of charge but not open source.
This would make a good general, like free resources general with a well maintained pastebin. If only it would be able to be kept alive
Sounds like a good idea. Will be collating all the links posted here into a pastebin pretty soon then.
/3/ is pretty much my "home board" (fag behind the /questions/ and /wip/ generals here), so I'll be around to maintain it.


Alright, first draft of 3DCG Free Resources courtesy of /3/.
Will try to keep it updated, so I'll add as you guys post more links.
Oh, please point out if anything's been miscategorised. All I did was check the links and guessed from there.
This seems well done actually. I hope theres enough stuff out there to keep a general bumped, otherwise it might have to be added to an existing general. Its a small board though so I'm sure a few people from the generals have posted here and wouldnt mind seeing this sort of stuff.
You're missing a lot of stuff from the kit-bash section.

fantastic thread, thanks for this

didn't they simply become textures.com

Sorry, didn't include those initially since they were links to pages rather than direct products.
Otherwise, pastebin's been updated with all the direct links to TFMSTYLE's free stuff (samples not included) as well as the rest linked in your post.


(same link, but just in case)

It'll be appended to the generals, both /wip/ and /questions/ (maybe /blender/ if I get hold of it again), since I'm pretty sure we can all agree it's a very helpful collection of links. We should keep a thread like this going too, to act as a dumping ground for all these links.

What's an edge map for?
dayum son that is pretty gud thanks
what does it mean?
this thread need to live
also im gonna make a pastebin out of this so guys keep posting
Plus check all the general OPs. Already made one.
does it contain fabric/latex stuff OP?
Im making a skintight suit and need some leather like materials
how do you do that?
the text phrase "free texture" didnt give you much

Don't know if it would be useful for anyone, or if this is the place to share, but I've made a procedural 80s "Chrome" lettering material for Blender. It's not realistic, but it captures the effect of 80s lettering pretty well.
It should be pretty self explanatory. The real magic happens when you plug the noise in between the texture coordinate node and mapping node.

If anything, it's a new year bump.

Nice thanks. I had the idea to do something like this, but I was too lazy and just hand painted it. I'd suggest using just a glossy shader, because the chrome font is imitating a metal, not a dielectric, so the diffuse technically isn't physically accurate. Apart from that, great shader :)
It looks...OKish t b h

Well this is more for that inside reflection with the mountains on the lettering. You'd put a real chrome shader on the body of the letters and then this on the front faces. Pic related.
Like I said, it's not a realistic effect (though you could do it by reflecting something similar with actual geometry behind the camera), but it's something just in case someone wants it.
Glad you like it though.

I probably should have shown it wish some context of how it's used.
Here's a shitty viewport example. Things could probably be done with the Principled shader to make the output look better though. I was more focused on the effect.
How do I use this? The material pipeline library doesn't have anything in the actual file, the downloaded materials are just image files, and I'm not sure the addon will do anything. Do I have to set up the nodes myself or am I dumb as hell?
I tried this, why is it so hard to find skyboxes and stuff though, i would really like some HD hdris of space stars and galaxies
Well, for starters, no one really has open access to space to make HDRIs the same way someone with any camera can make their own. At best it's all NASA stitches. So that means people end up having to make their own space scenes, and those usually end up being paid.
>for blender
>retards think materials are specific to the software


Also, these links should be added to the sticky or something if they haven't

>tfw /3/ has no board mods
This is too far down the page again. Bumping for posterity.

God bless all of you

OP here, im happy i started this thread, its grown into a community dump of resources and thats fucking great, thanks to everyone who contributed, if this thread dies in the future feel free to renew it and make it better :)

(p.s. heres another pic of my cat, have a nice time creating things frens)
It might be obvious but a bunch of people ive talked to didnt know that allegorithmic share site was a thing so if you are using substance anything here you go :

Good material, though what the topic at hand is asking about. We should really collate a new list of tutorial/reference material, shame >>663033 derailed basically instantly. Guess it's time to start discouraging guruposting.
what a dumb workaround. you can just bridge the thing up faster than that and just apply an inset and it would do the exact same thing but faster
It's probably from a time when "fill with quads" was not available in many software packages.
how's this then?
