We are happy to announce the release of something we've been working on for a long time.
BlenderKit is a new online platform made for Blender users, creators, and developers. We hope to bring a new momentum into the open source world by introducing several innovations we've been working on.
We provide an online database of materials, brushes and models that can be accessed directly from Blender via our add-on which makes your workflow considerably faster and more effective thanks to the new simple drag and drop feature. The database of materials and brushes is completely for free, while the models will be available through subscription. Now we are in release stage, where also the models database can be used for free.
BlenderKit is bringing a new way of sharing the income from subscriptions with the creators called Fair Share, and we are the first to use this type of system for providing creative assets. Our goal is also to give users influence over improvements to Blender so from all transactions, a 15% fee is charged to support Blender development for starting creators.
We're looking forward to help everyone to create good quality content faster and easier.
BlendetKit add-on is currently released for Blender 2.79, while the 2.80 version is in progress.

Literally every area you step in Blender requires you to learn a lot of new tools and information, and that's why we implemented several 'shortcuts' for convenience and speed.
Stones, rocks, pieces of wood can be sometimes photoscanned. But plants are still a domain of hard-core modeling. This really takes time, skill and precision, and a lot of observation what "natural" really means.
We just recently released a set of 9 texture-based PBR cycles materials.
We are trying to help you, blenderheads, to save your time while achieving best results possible. Wallpaper textures can really boost interior renders, but do you already have those on your hard drive?
As a late Christmas gift, we are releasing our BlenderKit mascot kitten for free. Now, you can make any scene insta-cute! The kitten is poseable and can be animated (by now 2.79 only, because of a hair-import bug in 2.8 beta).
BlenderKit introduces add-on for Blender 2.8. While there are still many changes in Blender happening, which may cause the add-on will work today and not tomorrow, the add-on should be mostly working fine, and we try to keep the new version updated with the latest Blender builds.
