Open 3D files on Wikimedia Commons


Recommended Posts

Wikimedia Commons (or simply Commons) is an online repository of free-use images, sounds, and other media files. It is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia projects have long been a treasure trove of 2D images, audio, and video. Since last February we all can upload 3D models of objects to share a new perspective on subjects. This means objects like a 12th century knight’s helmet, a bird figure from Nigeria, or even a working jet engine model can be uploaded, downloaded, 3D printed, and viewed with enhanced interactivity on Wikimedia sites. For sure this is a good news for all the 0 A.D. community also.

Another one that may be useful for 0 A.D. and its mods...

As references, sure, but they've not made them available under any license which allows reuse, so the actual models can't be used.
