I use sketchup make 2017 and I know that 3D warehouse no longer has 2017 components, but I have been downloading components from within the component window while working on a model, but now, seems that the download function is not working from within the program itself.
The 3D Warehouse no longer supports SketchUp 2018 or earlier. This was announced more than two months ago and the change took place several weeks ago.
You can access the 3D Warehouse through your Internent browser and download the Collada version of the component. Then import the .dae file into your SketchUp model.
I know this…but You also said I could download 2017 compatible models from within the component window when I have a model open and working on it. The download feature is not working from within the component window
In fact, what Dave said was entirely different. SketchUp 2017 and 2018 are no longer compatible with the models in the Warehouse, except when downloaded in an Internet browser in the Collada (.dae) format.
When you see a result you like in the Components panel, if you click on the text it will attempt to open the 3D Warehouse window. Instead of clicking on the text, click on the thumbnail. Then it should download into your scene.
Yes. And you can as Colin indicated.
