The desktop version of SketchUp would be more likely to handle a model the size of yours. Certainly you would be saving locally so you aren’t relying on a fast internet connection as you are with SketchUp Free. You still need to use good, clean, modeling processes. That includes making sure any components you get from the 3D Warehouse are properly made and that you purge unused stuff from your models.

Since this is just a hobby thing you could use SketchUp 2017 Make.

je pourrais acceder a la banque d’image 3d?
le projet que je construit actuellement pourrait s’ouvrie dans cette version?


The 3D Warehouse no longer supports SketchUp 2017 Make. You can use your internet browser to access the 3D Warehouse and get the Collada version of the components you are after. Then import the .dae file included with the Collada file into Sketchup.

At this point SketchUp Free won’t back save to version 2017 but you could upload to the 3D Warehouse and use the above procedure to get the file into SketchUp Make.

If you were to save the file in SketchUp Free back to SU2020, you could use an extension in SketchUp 2017 Make to open the newer version of the file. The extension doesn’t work if you simply save the file, though, because the version will be 2021.

Looking at your screen shots I would say that you should also wait to apply materials until your model is nearly complete. The materials load down the model and make it more challenging for your computer to handle it.
