In this category, we have classified a large number of classic ornaments, i.e., ornaments that have survived for hundreds of years and have proven to be universally beautiful, recognizable and applicable in a number of ways.
These are ornaments that make an impression of beauty on every person, so if your creativity is somewhat lower than usual, feel free to apply them in your work. Most of them come from some old books covering various topics such as art, architecture, book decoration, etc. As you can see, in this category there are classic ornaments of various shapes, and it’s up to you to find out which one you like most or suits your 3D project best. We have tried our best to draw each ornament as accurately as possible so that there won’t be any need for further editing. According to the pictures, this collection contains not just simple but also complex ornaments, whereby collections are usually made up of simple ornaments and the complex ones are published individually.
We have drawn them in 2D CAD or vector software, and made both 2D CAD and vector file formats always available to you. In our future work, we will only draw them with 2D CAD software because it is far more accurate than the vector software, and also has a higher degree of manipulation of the drawn elements. Previously, we used to divide these ornaments into categories by shape (square, rectangular, round, etc), but from now on they will be together in one big category, which will certainly facilitate their search. We hope that you appreciate ornaments like these as we do, and that you will think of some appropriate way to use them in your work. We also hope that you will send us photos of your projects decorated with these ornaments as we are very interested in your ideas resulting in practical application. It’s sheer delight to see that our work has not been in vain!
