3D Warehouse lives online, and you can access it from a web browser or via SketchUp 2017 or later.
In SketchUp, locate and click the 3D Warehouse icon in the top toolbar and a 3D Warehouse window appears that connects you to the main page.
Alternatively, you can open the 3D Warehouse by selecting Window > 3D Warehouse from the menu bar.
To upload a 3D model to 3D Warehouse, you use SketchUp or a web browser. All you need is a model and an account.
When all you want is a material (such as brick, tile, or grass), importing a whole component from 3D Warehouse into your model can bloat the file with content you probably don’t want or need. Just download the individual material instead. Here’s how:
If you accessed 3D Warehouse from SketchUp 2017, SketchUp then retrieves the material from 3D Warehouse and activates the Paint Bucket tool with the material loaded and ready to go. Click on the surface that you want to apply the material to, and you’re done!
If you accessed 3D Warehouse through a web browser, the SKM file for that material downloads. You can then add the SKM file to your local SketchUp content folders.
The SketchUp community is one of the most friendly and helpful around! With many designers finding inspiration from their fellow professionals or enthusiasts, sharing models via websites or social media is positively encouraged. Sharing is caring! Here’s how you embed a 3D Warehouse model on a web page:
