Polyhaven is a treasure trove for 3D artists, providing a vast collection of high-quality, free 3D assets. This public 3D asset library offers a variety of 1500+ resources, including HDRIs, textures, and 3D models, all available under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license, meaning they can be used for any purpose without restrictions.

What Polyhaven Offers

1. HDRIs:

Polyhaven features a comprehensive collection of 700+ high-dynamic-range images (HDRIs) that are essential for creating realistic lighting in 3D scenes. These HDRIs come in 16k+ resolution and are unclipped for one-click realistic lighting​.

2. Textures:

The site offers 500+ photoscanned, seamless PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials in at least 8k resolution. These high-quality textures are perfect for adding intricate details to 3D models​.

3. 3D Models:

Polyhaven’s library includes hyperreal 300+ 3D models suitable for visual effects and next-gen video games. These models are meticulously crafted by human artists to meet both current and future standards of quality​.

Community and Support

Polyhaven operates with a strong community focus. The platform is supported by donations from its users, allowing it to maintain and expand its library without paywalls or required signups. This community-driven approach ensures that the assets are not only free but also constantly updated and improved based on user feedback and needs.

Joining Forces for Better Service

Previously known as HDRI Haven, Texture Haven, and 3D Model Haven, these separate entities merged to form Polyhaven, streamlining their resources and creating a unified platform for all 3D asset needs. This consolidation has made it easier for users to find and utilize a wide range of assets from a single source.
