I am currently working with SketchUp Make 2016 and I’m often using parts from the 3D Warehouse in my projects.
I recently discovered that the newest SketchUp-free-thing is “web-based”.And I have also seen that file formats from “older” SketchUp versions are no longer available on the 3D Warehouse.
I really enjoy the concept of the 3D Warehouse and I would like to continue using it. Having thousands of models available is just great!
But the problem is that I don’t like “web-based” applications, like the newest SketchUp version.
Seeing the older file formats dissapear and the “future” beeing “web-based” I fear, that at some point, we won’t be able to actually download models from the warehouse, only to “import” them into the “web-based SketchUp application”.
So this is my question:
Should I now start downloading all the things from the 3D Warehouse that I might need in the next years or can I be sure that there will always be a option for people to download models from the warehouse and then work on them offline?
Because I don’t want to wake up one day and see that you can’t download from the Warehouse any more or that you have to be logged in to download. And I don’t want to be “forced” to use a web-based version of SketchUp if I want to use the Warehouse.
Thank you for reading this and for any replies!
