About Us

This site is dedicated to being a source for 3d printer help, printable 3d object files, and much more, with a focus on the open source 3d community.

Libre3D Group

Libre3D is being developed by a small yet growing team of 3D printing enthusiasts. Our objectives are to support Open Source 3D printing development from around the world.

Contributing to Libre3D

We desire 100% Free & Open Source ideas. For members we desire those who will increase the beauty of this resource to the Open Source 3D printing community.

We have Open Sourced our 3D File Renderer so that anyone in the community can make use of the library in their own site, to help with rendering 3d images for STL and other formats. The project is open to pull requests so anyone can contribute!
