Free and Open Source 3D Printing Stuff ;)

The Libre in Libre3d means "free". That is "Free as in speech, AND as in beer", we are all about Free and Open Source 3D Printing and sharing 3D object files (free speech), and making it cost nothing to participate (free beer).

No we are not giving out free beer, it's just a saying. This is a family friendly site! :)
You have several options:
  • We offer a quick search form on the front page for you to enter keywords to search.
  • We offer an Advanced Search page for you to refine your search criteria.
  • We offer browsing filters when you are browsing by category.
  • If you already know what you are looking for you can browse the categories listed on the left side of the site's pages.
You can set up search filters within your account area. Our site will then screen all new listings, as they are placed on the site, and if an item is listed that meets your filter (search) criteria, we will automatically send you an email notification.

We are currently considering creating a paid membership for those that want to support the website monetarily. If you are interested, contact us and let us know! :)
