Thread: Sources for 3D printable files

    Default Sources for 3D printable files

    As my new obsession/hobby is 3D printing of miniatures I have found that a large part of the hobby is finding the files you want to print. That aspect alone is almost an art unto itself, and it is time consuming. I am starting this thread in hopes that all who run across it will be able to benefit from the exhausting hours of searching that we must all do. I intend to post up my findings and maybe a few words from my experiences with each site/company. I do not intend to do full reviews, this is primarily a list of sources for printable files.
    I hope to see recommendations from you all. Not only am I sharing what I have found, I am shamelessly hoping to piggyback on the efforts of others!
    These are Patreons I am/have supported:
    Heroes Infinite- Very cool fantasy figs. Super great people running it, always helpful. Pre-supported files require a little "over-exposure" to work right.
    lord of the print- Variety of subjects, awesome creatures, especially Dragons.
    clay cyanide- Some super cool display oriented sculpts, I'm sure some could be used for gaming but I look at these as art/display models. Great Greek/Roman Gods
    Archvillain Games- Display quality sculpts, super detailed. Awesome Egyptian theme available.
    Lost Kingdom Miniatures- Gaming or display. Beautiful welcome pack. A big focus on lizardfolk.
    Random websites with files for free and sale:
    https://www.myminifactory.com/ , https://www.thingiverse.com/ , https://www.stlfinder.com/ , https://www.yeggi.com/

    Please add to this list as I am sure all will have found their own favorites from around the interwebz

    I just found another to add to the list. This guys stuff is simply A-mazing! He doesn't sculpt for miniatures and his stuff is large, 1/6 scale I believe. I have printed out a couple of his busts and his "Savage Beauty" At 60% of the original file size and they are so nice!

    Found two more Patreons I had to support (you'd think I still a job! SMH):
    3D Art Guy- Been following this guy and had to pull the trigger. Very nice models, whole diorama pieces. Super good value.
    Creature Armory- less models than the others and a bit on the large side. Very nice, detailed, and I have never seen such a small amount of supports work so well, impressive.

    Okay my friends if you need a rabbit hole of 3d prints available in dizzying amounts, one word: Discord. Through my Patreons I hooked into Discord. Been kind of avoiding it, feeling that this old dog doesn't need another new trick this month. Wow. I am in a reddit group for 40K, discord auto hooked us up. Did I say wow? Feels a little like when I found Audiogalaxie/limewire/winmx/PirateBay. -"Arr matey". that is all.
