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.

    I noticed that many owners of 3d printers use Thingiverse because it is the largest repository of stl files.

    I just wanted to drop a couple more on you. These are lesser known, for now. Daybreak Miniatures, super detailed fantasy, perhaps some usable for Warhammer. Awesomly supported as well as sculpted. The other being Ragous Creations. At the time of this posting there is still room to join at the early bird price. This guy has some awesome Sisters of Battle stuff! You need to see this months "Nundam". Heck, I'll grab a photo and post it...
    and here you go!
