3D Warehouse - failed to render

This problem has become more constant in the last few months…
Some models this error happens constantly, and others render without problems.

Some models that I have this problem:

Pendente STRIP SKY-3020PT Preto Skylight | 3D Warehouse (sketchup.com)

Pendente Cotton SKY-3027-2 Bronze Skylight | 3D Warehouse (sketchup.com)

I feel you, it has become annoying and frustrating for me. I’m was trying to upload this one particular model just now, today even though I’ve purged it and it still shows the same “FAILED TO RENDER” nonsense. What has gone to the 3D Warehouse these days? Sometimes it works, somestimes it doesn’t.

If you get “failed to render” try refreshing the webpage only in your browser.

What I find interesting is we keep getting told when we can’t access 3DW that SU17 is no longer supported but then the app warehouse works fine so why one and not both? The suits just think the peons won’t figure it out. I solved a bug in uploading and told The Guz and was told they were able to duplicate problem and they’d get right on it. The bug is still there years later so don’t hold your breath getting FTR resolved anytime soon.

I use SU17 and can’t download anything (Collada isn’t acceptable as a download option) so turnabout is fair play I upload as little as possible. Why should anyone go to the time and effort of making a model just to find out we get nothing in return?

BTW the current SU version and 2 years older rule would mean that 2019 ver should no longer be supported. When is that going to happen? The year will soon be over and I predict SU19 will be around into the following year.

I upload to the Warehouse just because I want to show off my work. Whether I do or don’t has nothing to do with an occasional hiccup. And…Trimble has removed many features that a lot of us liked. A lot worse would have to happen for me to “threaten” to reduce or stop uploading.

Sad to say, but it’s a fact, you aren’t causing Trimble any heartburn at all by not uploading to the Warehouse. If it hurts anyone, it’s the thieves who take models and sell on sites that cater to 3D virtual worlds (or whatever else they do with these models), and those who use the work of others to save themselves time and money. If they don’t snag one of your models (or yours aren’t there to snag to begin with), there are hundreds of thousands of others to choose from - not everything in the 3DWH is trash, or the thieves wouldn’t bother with the place.

Just sayin’…

I agree with you, SketchrUppr. I also experienced the same thing, always failed to render the model after uploading, many reasons this and that, big file, texture had to be resized, lines were hidden, blah blah… because before november 2021, I was always successful in uploading the model … the problem is only on the 3d warehouse website, I’m pretty sure that. and their team did not fix it until now (July 2022),

SketchrUppr, I don’t mind uploading to share with others the problem is I’m not allowed to down
load and share what others have done. Collada is the only option and it’s crappy. The Collada file has to practically be redrawn to be able to use. I’m well aware Tribble won’t lose any sleep over it agreed they don’t care. As far as thieves go I quit uploading models as often as possible that may have potential to make profit for others without some trouble for them to use straight off the shelf.

Do you think it’s enjoyable to go to a lot of time and effort making a decent model (I do enjoy the process of creating) and not get anything but lots more effort to be able to use someone else’s model?

I’m just wrapping up a huge model and considering uploading MP4’s to the Forum and share what I’m doing that way. Just as I can only view so shall others.

Just statin’…
