There are a lot of 3d models (*.stl files) for ships, terrain, WWI+ era soldiers, guns, vehicles etc. available to 3d print them in different scales.
But the only such 3d models for WSS and SYW (both infantry and cavalry)were found by me here:

And I don't like them much

So the question: Is there WSS and SYW miniature models for 3d printing besides aforementioned ones (either to buy them or free ones)?

Get in touch with Graham at Crann Tara Miniatures. He is at the forefront of 3D SYW modeling. He may be able to give you some informed guidance.

Did some Karoliner figures for me a few years ago in the generic Holger Eriksson style but full round. They own copyright so they might be available.

You would need a resin printer to produce them yourself. Or I think they could produce them for you. Or get a master printed and then cast in metal for best results.

Getting sharp edges on belts probably needs resin. Dangly bits like bayonets and swords might be easily breakable. Technology might have moved on since then. Color printing is possible now if you have the money.

You don't mention scale…

There was a guy with a sizable collection of 18th century figure STL files for sale. The deal was you paid for the whole set and you get it all plus everything he adds. Seemed like a good deal. But I can't find his web page now. Very annoying.

I'm also looking for Karoliner stls.

I'm currently printing Iron Chicken's Napoleonic Spanish in 54mm and they've been turning out lovely.

Actually I was interested in models suitable for 15mm to 28 mm scales (with 1/72 in between) – certainly not 54mm or other exhibition miniatures, but ones for wargaming

Those that I saw at Crann Tara Miniatures seems to be maste models for future casting
