There is of course a wide variety of quality in the models available the 3DWarehouse. This is expected I think from a public repository. Users understand that this is an un-curated space and take care to watch out for very high poly or unpurged or over textured items that might crush a file if added, not to mention plain sloppy modeling. We on the forum continue to assist and educate new users on a regular basis who have locked up their model by indiscriminately adding entourage from the warehouse (I’m looking at you plants). I feel like this is one of the reasons for the distinction of “products” vs “models”. The “products” collection is supposedly verified in some kind of process, but more and more under products I am finding whole collections of models uploaded by supposed manufacturers which are actually converted file types from other CAD platforms and some are ridiculously huge files, sloppily made click bait with file sizes so big they are essentially unusable. I’m curious what the verification process is, and if there is any over-sight on this process.
Check out this little gem, before you click the link, take a guess at the file size of this blocky little end table.
