Free Blender Model Page and Catalog – Thangs Blender Addon

Thangs’ Add-on for Blender

Thangs-Blender-Addon is an addition to the Blender model sites and Blender catalogs you already use! You can search, preview, and download Thangs‘ vast variety/quantity of compatible free blender models.

Thangs-Blender-Addon is an open-source community-developed project using the Thangs.com API.

Features

Thangs-Blender-Addon is an integrated search engine for Blender that allows you to search for free prebuilt models/meshes so that you can save time in your creative workflow process by not needing to navigate to other Blender model pages and Blender catalogs. You can then navigate to Thangs and import your desired model. The viewport can display previews of all the models found on Thangs in the add-on. The addon is meant to help find your desired meshes or models as fast as possible – while being a built-in Blender model site 🙂
