Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use these assets in commercial work?
Yes, of course. More about the CC0 license here.
Can I use these assets in Maya/Max/Unreal/C4D/<insert 3d software of choice>?
Probably! Currently we provide all assets as .blend files and .fbx files. If your software can't import FBX, you can download Blender and re-export it in a different format.
We will support other software formats natively in future when those Patreon goals are met.
Textures are supplied as standard PBR maps that most modern render/game engines expect.
Can I upload my own models to 3D Model Haven?
Yes! But we have a strict standard of quality and some important information you need to read first. Find out more here.
Do you use Photogrammetry/Photoscanning?
Sometimes yes, but remember this is just one of the many tools available. Our goal is to create quality assets, and we'll use whatever methods are best for each model.
How is this funded?
Most of our funding comes from you, on Patreon. We also accepted a $10k grant from Epic Games that helped to cover some of the initial costs in getting the site started, but from now on everything we do is funded by the community.
Where did the gun models go?
When we launched the site, we commissioned a few gun models from various authors to publish here. These have now been removed, as we assume their creators based their work off of real-world gun designs, which is likely the intellectual property of the manufacturers.
This is a legal grey area we'd rather avoid - the models themselves are CC0, but the designs they may be based off of probably aren't - so it's safer for everyone if we just remove them from the site.
In future we plan to replace them with models based on original fictional designs.
