Sometimes it’s just like searching for a needle in a haystack: if you’ve ever googled for free and quality 3D models for your next interior scene, you know exactly what we talk about. Of course there are a lot of artists that like to create their own 3D objects, and have full control, but sometimes there is no physical time for that, and you just want a certain model of chair, or table or what not, and you search high and low for it.
In this context, we found appropriate to present you a round-up of websites that provide 3D Models supplied directly by the manufacturers, so you will have the scaled objects, and some times even textured the way they are supposed to. In addition we will provide some of our own models soon just for good will, and as a thank you to all of our readers.

Blender 3D: Architecture, Buildings, and Scenery will be featured here at Archtopia for a while, and it describes the power of Blender 3D in Architectural Visualizations. You will see how to use the final models to create simpler scenes for use in 3D games, where real-time rendering is necessary. You will also see how to use them to create the sets for animated movies.

Architecture-Viz is the home base of two of our friends, and ex-university colleagues. Their work become more and more surrealistic and original. The two architects behind the projects will soon make a big name for themselves with their work and approach. They use Cinema 4D in conjunction with Vray for C4D, and as you will soon see, they master them. Photoshop too. You can check their official websites here: a-viz.com, randari.wordpress.com
Also, we want to show you what they’re capable of. Here are a few of their projects:
Yep, these are all renderings, believe it or not …
