Sometimes a free registration is necessary in order to be able to download files, some operators like TurboSquid offer not only free models but also paid models. However, before you incorporate parts of a downloaded model into your own 3D work, you should check the license - some Creative Commons variants, for example, stipulate that the author of the original object be named.
