Sketchfab has over 200,000 models on its website, and we review the most downloaded models at the end of each month. This gives us an idea of both the variety of models available on Sketchfab, and what the most popular models are for 3D printing devotees. This week we get a bit of a history lesson regarding two models: the amphora and the pergola. There’s also a lovely rose design and a game character figure, both by humanti. Finally, how can you go wrong with a highly detailed Batman design for superhero fans?

One of the best things about 3D printable models is the design details. Here, the details of a simple rose display the skill of the designer, humanti, and how 3D printing can capture everything lovely and delicate about a simple rose.

Amphora Which Sword

This is a game character designed, again, by humanti. This character looks quite serious, wielding a sword behind his back. Designer humanti appears to have quite an eye for detail and leaves no stone unturned expressing this character’s individuality. From his serious stance, and intense look on his face, we can assume he’s prepared to win any fight that comes his way!

Batman (2)

This Batman figure is really incredible. Designed by milostutus in ZBrush, the designer reports that it is set up to be printed on any 3D printer. Also, for anyone over the top about having more superhero (and villain!) figures available for 3D printing, the designer reports that the Joker may be coming soon.

Almagro 51A-B Amphora

An amphora is an ancient vase-style container that can be dated as far back as the Neolithic period. This particular model by MicroPasts was taken from the University of Southampton’s Roman Amphorae web resource. It is said that amphorae were used mainly to transport wine, but they were also used to transport wet and dry goods. Most are ceramic, but they have also been found in metal. This model, the Almagro 51 A-B Amphora (ADS DR41), shows the practical style serving an immediate function: drink more wine!

Pergola

A pergola is a garden structure, using pillars and cross beams, that creates a walkway which can be entangled by vines and other plants. Considered a type of gazebo, one of the earliest mentions of a pergola is 1645, and they haven’t changed much since then. This model by designer mrenee captures the simplicity of the concept, and would be a good one for model-making with 3D printed parts.
