Remix 3D is your online community for 3D content. Get inspired by what you see, and curate idea boards with your favorite content. You can even debut your own 3D work and share it online with your friends.
Boards are a great way to keep your Remix 3D models organized. Create a school project board, a board for all sea monsters, or just use the default Save for later board to collect favorites from the community.
First time with 3D? Getting started is easy. Browse the homepage of the community and find something that you'd like to work on. Or, search for stuff in the search bar using keywords, like "buildings," "hats," or "elephants."
Once you find something you like, remix it in Paint 3D and make it your own. Open the model and select Remix in Paint 3D on your Windows 10 PC (you must be running the Windows 10 Creators Update). You can add more 3D objects, cover it with stickers, or paint all over your model!
When you're ready to upload your model back to Remix 3D, go to Menu > Upload to Remix 3D.
Once your model has been published to the Remix 3D community, it is joining a large network full of 3D models and the people who create them. As soon as a model has been uploaded, anyone can open it from the community, remix it, or even 3D print it. You will always have attribution for the models you upload.
Everyone in Remix 3D plays an important role in keeping our community safe. If you see something that makes you uncomfortable, please let us know. Our built-in reporting option makes this fast and easy to do, and our moderation team reviews all reports and removes content that doesn’t follow our guidelines.
