Using the Asset Store

The Unity Asset Store contains a library of free and commercial assets that Unity Technologies as well as members of the community create. A wide variety of assets are available, including Textures, Models, animations, entire project examples, tutorials, and Editor extensions. You can access purchased and downloaded assets from an interface that is built into the Unity Editor which allows you to download and import assets directly into your project.

Unity users can become publishers on the Asset Store, and sell the content they have created. For more information, see Asset Store Publishing.
