Free Blender Textures

Posted on  by admin

Here's a fantastic resource of freely usable texture maps!

Different licenses:

  1. Greg Zaal writes:. Joost Vanhoutte has been selling textures and HDRIs on gumroad for a long time now, but yesterday he announced that his site (texture.ninja) is now free :D.
  2. It has over 4000 high res textures available for instant download on texture.ninja.

How do I add textures to models in Blender?

If you appreciate his work, he has a patreon page now too. License information:.

You are allowed to use these textures for commercial work. Whether you paid for access to the website or if you’re a free user. You may not redistribute unmodified textures.

3D Textures

Welcome to this curated collection of textures and image resources.

This collection is an on-going project, as with each movie we create a number of textures based on our own resources (photographs, scans, etc.), made completely from scratch, or contributed by the community.

Every Texture

You can now browse this (and your own!) Texture Library within Blender!Get the Add-On.

Share Textures

Free to use anywhere, for any purpose.

Share Textures is another great library with hundreds of free textures, there are some weird obviously procedural textures, but other than that it is a great place for free textures.

Download: Gives you several image resolution options, but does not let you select individual maps.

3Djungle

License:Editorial

3Djungle has a massive texture library, with over 5000 textures! Many seem like there would never be a reason to use them in a 3D scene, but there are just so many that it can be used as a back-up, if textures are not available on other texture websites.

Download: Easy download, The image sizes are random (usually fairly high res) and no map choosing options when downloading.

3DAssets.one

Though this site does not offer textures itself, it is an extremely helpful platform which allows you to search for textures across multiple free texture websites at the same time! After clicking on an image, you will be taken to the website where you can download the files.
