We recently launched a bunch of new features on 3D Warehouse (visit the SketchUp Blog for the full run down). Chief among the new stuff is an update to the Materials stat in the Model Details Page info panel. This stat is now clickable, and clicking it will reveal a fly-out panel that allows you to browse and download materials from the In Model material library. SketchUp 2017 users, who are browsing 3D Warehouse via SketchUp’s embedded 3D Warehouse window, will see that SketchUp automatically activates the Paint Bucket tool when downloading a Material from 3DW. Here’s a video that shows the process in action.
If you have thoughts about using 3D Warehouse as a go-to repository for downloading/importing materials into your SketchUp projects please feel free to share them here!
Thanks (& enjoy)!
