Low Poly-fy Your 3D Models Online For Free

In the world of 3D printing, there’s a trend to have low poly versions of models. Admittedly, the faceted blocky forms are fairly appealing. However, making a low poly model can be a bit of a torturous activity.

Andrew Sink, a senior applications engineer in additive manufacturing, came up with a system that makes it a breeze. Simply upload your file to this browser based tool, fiddle with the sliders, and download your low-poly styled result.

The whole thing is open source, built using Three.js JavaScript library. You can find all the source code on Github if you’re interested.


Senior Editor for Make: I get ridiculously excited seeing people make things. I just want to revel in the creativity of the masses! My favorite thing in the world is sharing the hard work of a maker.

I'd always love to hear about what you're making, so send me an email any time at caleb@make.co
