Introducing dark mode viewing for 3D Warehouse

We are excited to introduce a new way of viewing 3D Warehouse — dark mode! This display setting is easy on the eyes, in more ways than one: it makes your 3D models pop on the screen, reduces eye fatigue, and is perfect for night owls viewing bright screens.

Our software engineers prefer the dark aesthetic and nerded out creating this pet project for you. It also uses less energy, which means it’s good for your battery life.

Here’s how you can access it:

  1. Head over to 3D Warehouse.
  2. Hover over your Avatar menu (upper right) and click on 3D Warehouse Settings.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the Settings page to locate Theming.
  4. Put a check in the box next to “Enable Dark Theme?” and click save.

Once you change your settings, 3D warehouse will automatically remember your preferences the next time you log in. Do you prefer dark mode? Let us know!


HA!..very cool indeed!..

Can we please have an option to choose to keep the 3d Warehouse window open after downloading an item into SketchUp? It gets old opening the Warehouse window over and over again and loosing the search history each time. Can’t we just leave it open by default? I’ll close it when I want to.
