The 3D Warehouse inside SketchUp

To help celebrate the launch of SketchUp 7, the 3D Warehouse team got together and decided to give the SketchUp product team (and the worldwide modeling community) a little gift; we made some changes so the 3D Warehouse works better with SketchUp – and not just SketchUp 7. Tom S. and I sat down to work on it, and a few cups of coffee later, here we are.

Now when you click the Get Models icon in SketchUp, you'll see a new, simplified homepage with a cleaner overview of 3D Warehouse content. You can sit back and watch the models roll by or get straight down to business by searching for what you need. Here's another hint: If you're new to the 3D Warehouse, the content under the Browse and Learn menus is also worth a closer look.

We've improved the model upload process, too. Clicking Share Model (back in SketchUp) provides you with a greatly simplified upload page. It also includes a preview of your model image and a map for geo-located models.

Please re-instae the "back" button in the component window. It's still there in the materials window but it's replaced by a "view" button in the component's window. This button is integral to the ease of use of selecting components for use quickly. Please re-instate the back button. PLEASE!

I love SketchUp but I can't upload more than 13 models to my account. everytime I try to upload the 14th model, the last model I uploaded gets kicked out. Pluse the previews for some of the models in my collections don't match the model in the file. Can we fix this next please?

Hi hodappdesigns,

Would you mind posting this question to http://groups.google.com/group/3dwh/topics? I'll reply (and most likely request more details) there.

Thanks,
Rich
