It's time for 3D Basecamp! September 21st - October 1st - We'll do our best but we may be not be able get back to you as quickly as you're used to. Please expect some delay in responses.

Accessing 3D Warehouse

3D Warehouse lives online, and you can access it via SketchUp or from a web browser.

In SketchUp, select File > 3D Warehouse > Get Models or select Window > 3D Warehouse, and a 3D Warehouse window appears that connects you to the main page, as shown in the following figure.

Tip: If you want to download a model directly into SketchUp, access 3D Warehouse through SketchUp’s File menu. This method is the quickest and easiest way to download and start working with a 3D Warehouse model.

Due to our reliance on modern browser technologies for displaying 3D Warehouse features, it's no longer possible to use the 3D Warehouse web interface within SketchUp 2016 or earlier on Windows. The only workarounds are to upgrade to a newer version of SketchUp, which now uses our own embedded browser, or to use the web interface in the browser of your choice.

Connect to 3D Warehouse directly from SketchUp

In your browser, go to, and you see an almost identical 3D Warehouse main page, only, of course, in your browser window, as shown in the following figure.
