Seeking free 3d models of office and residential buildings to download

Where could a young, devilishly handsome architect find free 3d models of office and residential buildings to download, preferably in 3ds or DXF format?

Trees and vehicles would come in handy as well.

try Most of their models will cost a bit, but you'll find some free stuff too.

I deal with this sort of thing verrrry tangentially at work, and I might have some resources for you there. I'll check tomorrow and shoot you an e-mail if I find anything. A couple off of the top of my head that might help... Viz Depot or 3Dimension or Rocky 3D.

as geekanimator says, Turbosquid is your best bet, but I hope that a d.h.a. is able to produce some quick and dirty ones as well. You might also look at cgarchitect for others.

Response by poster: grimley, this particular d.h.a. is able to and is doing so, but I need to quickly populate an entire cityscape, so.
Thanks for the links so far!

Best answer: Here is the free architecture model list at 3Dcafe

Also -> check out automatic CGI city generation for the masses, baby
