Creating a color collection from a specific paint manufacturer

I am a scenic designer using SketchUp for the majority of my design work. I use one specific brand of paint (Pittsburgh) for most of my designs, and I would love to be able to have their catalog of paints available for my design work. I can’t seem to find a pre-made collection for them, and I’ve been searching all over for some sort of info on how to get their colors and names/numbers plugged into my projects to simplify my workflow and give me better representations to show people.

Any advice on how to do this? I have found their color swatches in the 3D Warehouse, but that’s a completely different beast.


Why aren’t the swatches you found in the warehouse acceptable?

Because they are huge models that can only be dropped into a project, and not color collections.

Unless I’m missing something?

When you go to the warehouse and see the collection you like, go under model info to the right and you’ll see materials… click that and you’ll be able to download each one individually

Yes, the ability to easily create and organize your own material collections.
You can do so using the PPG models in 3DWH.
