Hugo award-winning author Ann Leckie once said of science fiction, “Writers can't build worlds out of nothing. We use bits and pieces of the real world to assemble our fictional ones.” Something similar could be said for CG visualization and world-building. Concept artists can always create from ‘scratch’ based on their experiences, but with kitbashing, the practice of reconfiguring bits and pieces of existing assets, designers can experiment faster and create even bigger picture ideas and stories.
But in order to kitbash, you’ll first need 3D models – and whether you want to envision alien desert worlds, explore cybernetic futures, or travel the void of space, KitBash3D has you covered! Take a look below for five 3D model packs to boost your next sci-fi project.
The sandblasted metal and stone exteriors in this kit are perfect for establishing the base of operations for galactic fighters or building an alien clan's heavily armored village in the desert. Try it with Medieval Market and Heavy Metal to create the remains of once-great civilizations.

Every extraterrestrial civilization has to start somewhere. With this kit, you can plant the seed of society on new worlds or create planetary research outposts. Of course, either way, you may need Spaceships to get there.
The advanced organic architecture in this kit is perfectly suited for environmentally conscious societies that harmoniously intertwine with nature. It pairs nicely with our High Tech Streets kit too!
With this kit’s otherworldly geometric architecture and imposing towers, you can create the colossal high-tech worlds of a distant future or lost super-advanced civilizations of an unrecognizable past. Grab our Highways kit to connect your sci-fi city together!
Populate the streets of your Cyberpunk worlds with tons of kiosks, storefronts, food joints, machinery, and so much more! Pair it with our Neo Shanghai and Secret Lab kits to further expand the creative possibilities.
