Google just opened its Poly by Google platform where you can find, share and use virtual and augmented reality objects. And what’s best: It’s free!

If you’re building for virtual and augmented reality, you need 3D objects for your apps. With Tilt Brush and Blocks, Google makes 3D creation easier. „Now, we want to enable creators and developers to build on everyone’s work. That’s why we created Poly: one place to browse, discover and download 3D objects“ (Andrea Zvinakis, Product Manager, Poly).

Poly lets you quickly find 3D objects

Poly lets you quickly find 3D objects and scenes for use in your apps, and it was built from the ground up with AR and VR development in mind. It’s fully integrated with Tilt Brush and Blocks, and it also allows direct OBJ file upload, so there’s lots to discover and use. Whether you’re creating an intense space walk in VR or a serene garden of AR flowers, you’ll find the ingredients you need in Poly.

Search thousands of free models for use in your AR or VR apps, including everything from a rocket ship to a synthesizer to an ice cream cone. Found a robot you like, but need it with four arms instead of two? You can remix many of the models you find. Click “like” to import a remixable object into Tilt Brush or Blocks and make changes; Poly will automatically credit and link to the original creation when you publish your remix.

If you’re a developer

In addition to being a great place for developers to find assets, anyone can use Poly to view 3D objects in a mobile or desktop browser. You can search for specific things, like a fox or a pizza. Once you discover something you like, you can create a shareable GIF or view it in VR using Cardboard or Daydream View.

So if you’re a developer building for VR, ARCore or ARKit, or you just want to explore cool 3D objects and scenes, Poly will help you quickly and easily find what you’re looking for.
