SketchUp Models Vol I

This is a first for me, I don’t usually upload my SketchUp models to the 3D Warehouse because I’m ferociously protective of them. Yes, I do realise how ridiculous that sounds but hey, I am what I am!

Mine All Mine

If you’re familiar with the process of 3D modelling (wine, you need lots of wine), then you’ll understand why.

However, the SketchUp 3D Warehouse was an absolute lifesaver for me when I first embarked on my 3D Visualisation path of torment discovery. The ready-made models unquestionably eased me much more gently into the world of 3D modelling (and it continues to be an essential resource for my 3D modelling needs), until I gained enough knowledge, confidence and skill to start creating my own models.

So, I would like to officially declare my undying gratitude and appreciation to all of the lovely SketchUp-ers who have so generously uploaded their many accomplished and impressive 3D models to the 3D Warehouse. You rock!!

A huge thank you to the peeps at SketchUp for creating the 3D Warehouse; SketchUp, in my mind, continues to be the only CAD application that utilises such an intuitive, user-friendly approach to 3D modelling. A quick peek at my 3D Visualisation portfolio will tell you all you need to know about the fantastic results that can be achieved using SketchUp (and Maxwell Render).

Thank you

It’s time to give back.

Today I’ve uploaded various SketchUp models/components that I have constructed within the last year or so that have been used in the many 3D visuals I have created (some were created for specific commissions where an elevation drawing was only required).

Check out these little beauties! I have provided an image and individual links to the 3D Warehouse for each 3D model. I’ve also included 3D visuals, where appropriate. I hope they come in handy for any 3D modelling projects you may be undertaking.

    They all look great when rendered, makes such a difference to the component. Amazing software (Maxwell & SketchUp).

      You’re welcome, John! Although, my feeble attempts at 3D modelling aren’t anywhere near as accomplished as some. But hey, every little helps, right? Thanks so much for dropping by 🙂

  4. Hi Anita! Thank you so much for sharing these models. I downloaded the kitchen units to my PC. But I don’t know how to use them in Sketchup? 😦

    Hi Anita infact I remain grateful for giving back your sketchup components to Sketchup community.I have been using sketchup about four years now, but don’t know how to render my sketchup projects with Vray or either Maxwell render, I usually render my projects with artlants studio instead. Pls can u give me some information about Maxwell render, most what I like to learn is Vray render. Thanks

  6. Im really getting hooked on your site! I discovered your blog yesterday through your basic sketchup tutorials and I loved it because your explanation was really thorough and clear. I’m a design student and teaching myself on the ropes of sketchup. Keep up the good work and more interior design 3d tutorials 🙂
