What does 3D Warehouse do?

SketchUp’s 3D Warehouse is essentially an online library which allows designers from around the world to download and upload their 3D creations. Designers who use any version of SketchUp from 2017 onward can use the program and all of its capabilities for free. 


One of the biggest benefits of 3D Warehouse is that it allows users to drastically speed up their projects. Whether you’re in need of a bed, couch or tree for your design, you can simply browse through thousands of different models on 3D Warehouse, choose the one you like and use it, instead of having to create it yourself. 


Another great reason to use the software is that it allows designers to store all of their models in one, easily accessible, place. 3D Warehouse allows users to access their work from anywhere as long as they have an internet connection. This means that you don’t have to do everything from your work computer, you can go on holiday with your laptop, log in to your account through your internet browser and have access to all of your saved designs. 


Last but certainly not least, uploading your work to 3D Warehouse doesn’t mean that everyone will have access to your designs. Users decide who gets to see their projects, if anyone at all.
