We all know there’s a lot of junk on the Trimble 3d Warehouse. Some people do post some useful items made nicely in SketchUp. A lot seems to be made in other programs. A lot of it is junk for the reason it is poorly modeled or bloated, out of scale etc. Then there’s just dumb stuff or sad half-baked models (so …it’s OK kids can put stuff up too). And then there’s misogynistic, borderline pornographic people models. Overwhelmingly white people too I notice.
Then again along the lines of people and car models, you’ll find stuff that is basically TOO good. Models that look professionally made and simply don’t appear to be made by the poster. Some posters have obviously gone overboard uploading a lot of this sort of model, and apparently Trimble doesn’t care. It looks like stolen goods. Some people put links, in their model posts, to sites where they got it (to give credit I guess). And those sites are full of pirated software as well.
So I look at some of these and think, “This people (or car) model could be useful in my render,…but should I download it?” Kind of a different feeling than I associate with SketchUp generally.
