You can now download the 3D models of the Museum of Computing (of Computer History) of the School of Computer Science of the University of Castilla-La Mancha offers a walk through the history of computers. Go there and get free 3D models of classic computers.
The exhibition shows some hardware equipment donated by different people (mainly university professors) and institutions and grouped to offer the visitor an homogeneous view of every aspect related with the evolution of computers.
In addition, there is a collection of 3D models of old computers that can be downloaded, in Blender format. You can use the free Blender to load them and save it in another file format if you need it for another application.
All are low polygon models, perfect for internet use. Lovers of retro-computing will love it, and just everyone that's curious. Some have also textures mapped.
You'll find 3D models of computers like Commodore64, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad, the Saturn console, the first apple computer...
The license of these free 3D models is Creative Commons 2.5 Attribution license, that just means that you can use it for anything, commercial or not, but you MUST link somewhere to the Museum or mention it.
This is a video that you can watch if you think in going to Spain, and will give you an idea of what's the Museum.
