Compass rose 3D model

Here you can download a compass rose 3D model (sometimes called a windrose or Rose of the Winds). The compass rose is an indicator of geographic directions, i.e., a graphic representation of geographic directions on maps, nautical charts, compasses or some other objects.


Except for giving the orientation of the cardinal (north, east, south, and west) and intermediate directions (northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest ), the compass rose often displays secondary intercardinal directions (north-northeast, north-northwest, south-southeast …) as well. The compass rose has been a very common graphic element on coats of arms, various emblems, logos, maps etc.

The appearance of the compass rose 3D model in the picture is giving the impression that it is easy to model, whereby we have placed a 3D fleur-de-lis symbol in the middle for decorative purposes. If you prefer some other 3D design instead, feel free to download it on our site and place it in the middle of the 3D compass rose.
