I found a usable free model of an origami crane at


Used MeshLab to import .obj and then export .x3d


Nice work, came up with a usable result.  Origami applicability to X3D is interesting to consider, further ideas welcome.


Turns out there are a number of sites with search capabilities for 3D models, some free and some for purchase.  So I added a prelinary list to X3D Resources, additions welcome.

	X3D Resources -  Model Search

* 3dbar.net free collections from 3D designers
* 3D Model Search Engine by Princeton Shape and Retrieval Analysis Group (various sources)
* Archibase Planet free collections from 3D designers
* archive3d.net
* Turbo Squid (for purchase and free)
* yeggi.com Search Engine for 3D printable Models
* yobi3d.com (proprietary, available for non-commercial use)

Additional 3D model search sites welcome.  Have fun with X3D!
