     Creating realistic 3D plants, trees, and vegetation from scratch can be difficult and time consuming, even with high-end 3D modeling software. Most commercial programs come with a very limited variety of botanical models in their libraries (mostly trees, for some reason). Some of them look more like polygons on a stick. Even if you have specialized software for generating botanical models, it often takes a lot of experimentation and fine tuning to achieve exactly what you're looking for. This site is intended to provide an archive of free, original, realistic, customizable botanical models in DXF & 3DS formats, for artists, animators, architects, designers, and other 3D enthusiasts. All of the models in the download section are free for commercial or non-commercial use*.  In addition, tutorials are provided to demonstrate techniques for optimizing and modifying imported 3D models in various programs. The Image Gallery contains examples of ray-traced 2D artwork and other graphic art images submitted by users of this site. The links section has links to a variety of 3D resources including sites, software, newsgroups, and 3D community message boards. A CD is now also available for purchase online which contains 60 all new original models plus UV textures and "Poser-style" templates. Click here for details.

New models will be added to the free download section on a regular basis - all original content - no "recycled" internet downloads. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back often!
