Group Info

Group UNDER CONSTRUCTION, stay tuned
This group is focused on sharing FREE 3D resources for sci-fi addicted 3d modellers, animators and artists. We also share 3d renderings, tutorials, 2D reference sheets and concept art, but the main focus is on sharing FREE 3d models for sci-fi addicted fans.
This is not a showcase where to sell models and assets. Only freely downloadable resources can be posted here.

Also, please try to submit models in "popular" formats, keeping an eye on easy portability and conversion issues. It's not strictly required but appreciated if you share your models in easely reuseable formats (like OBJ, FBX and LWO), regardless of what is your favourite 3d software.

THIS GROUP EXPLAINED IN A FEW WORDS (and rules)

This group is born to share free sci-fi 3d resources (models, textures, reference sheets, and so on). Our main goal is not the final artwork (altough we have some art galleries) but to share the resources needed to make 3d artworks.

It's a big lack that modellers and 3d artists often have serious difficulties in finding useful resources for their artworks, unless they go on commercial websites like turbosquid, renderosity, cgtrader and so on. Also, some useful sites which gave out free models in the past, seem to have now a lot of troubles in keeping themselves working, or either in managing user registrations.

This wants to be a meeting point, where both modellers and final 3d artists can share their passion for science fiction and 3d modelling/posing/animating.
Choosing to share a handmade model which costed a lot of hours or days or weeks of hard work is a great demonstration of generosity and kindness, and nothing to take for granted. We have absolutely nothing against modellers who decide to not share their work, or to share them only for a fee. But this is not the group focus.

Our focus is to help final 3d artists in finding reuseable contents for free. To help newbie modellers and 3d fan to start modelling and to improve their modelling skills. To share knowledges, ideas, references, links and so on.

Note: this is not a place where to share a few low-ploy sample models just to encourage perople in buying the improved versions for a fee. Again, we respect and we have absolutely nothing against modellers who decide to earn from their creative and hard work. But this group is not born to be used as a showcase for commercial resources.

----------------------------------

----------------------------------

QUICK GUIDELINE TO SUBMISSIONS
When a group grows up it becomes hard to manage it when members load their stuffs randomly or in the first folder they find listed. So you're courtesly invited to submit in the proper gallery.

All galleries marked by the DLC prefix concern DownLoadable Contents. Mainly 3d models but also 2d resources like textures and backgrounds.

All galleries marked by the ART prefix concern final artworks

All galleries marked by the REF prefix concern reference sheet images, blueprints, skecth concepts or tutorials

When in doubt about which is the proper destination folder, please ask an admin or submit into the UNCATEGORIZED folder (admins will choose as soon as possible the proper gallery where to move, or will create a new folder if not present)

----------------------------------

ABOUT 3D FILE FORMATS
All 3D file formats are allowed for sharing DLCs, but please keep in mind the main goal of this group is to make easier the 3d artists' life. Some formats are more easely convertible to other software plaftorms. Many 3d modelling/rendering softwares have plugins and import/export tools to make easier the use of external formats, but always try to distribute your models without forcing people to use a specific software, specially if you're sharing models made using commercial software like 3d max, Maya, C4D or "exotic" softwares.

Consider that for some commercial formats there are no legal plugins to import in other softwares. For example Blender users who wanted to import a 3ds or a C4D model are left with no choice other than to buy the same commercial software used to make the model or to find some "shortcut" to get the way to convert the model in a format they can use.

So you're gently invited to even distribute a "portable" version using some open or universally supported format, like OBJ, FBX or Collada.
This is not a strict requirement for your submissions, but one of our goals is to drop down the barriers actually preventing final users in finding useful models. Having no easy chance of conversion from a specific commercial file format is definitively a barrier. An unwanted one.

----------------------------------

SCI-FI AND REAL WORLD
As stated in the group rules, both strictly sci-fi stuffs and real world astronomy/space stuffs are allowed. This is because even a real world object (let's say an artificial satellite, an existing asteroid, a handgun) can be properly used for sci-fi purposes. Just think about the StarGate series or other popular sci-fi movies and novels, mixing together real world matters and fiction ones.
Submitted stuffs don't have to be strictly futuristic. Just use your common sense when submitting general purpose or contemporary stuffs, thinking about the predicted use artists will make of them.

Attention SciFi-3D-Share...again.

My 3D meshes, object files, etc. that are for Nexus Arcana (TM) are NOT for sharing, or sale. My answer to your queries about adding those pieces to your gallery will always be no because your members will NOT be allowed to have the object files or texture files since I don't own them, Yesod Publications llc does.
Nexus Arcana art is posted on my gallery for MARKETING of the Nexus Arcana Science Fiction novel series and no other reason. They are works for hire that I get PAID to create.

Is that a problem even if only sharing the previews?

It is if your users think they can use the art for their own fanfictions/work.
My images are Marketing for the Nexus Arcana novels, and nothing else.
I've had Deviantartists use my art on their websites for blogs, etc. and Yesod Publications llc lawyers have sent them Cease & Desist orders and in one case sued a person for using their artwork.
It's better just to not create the problem in the first place.
