Customise your digital showroom with SketchUp Pro's 3D Warehouse
New updates in SketchUp Pro's 3D Warehouse
You might have noticed some improvements if you’ve uploaded your products to SketchUp Pro's 3D Warehouse recently. You can now add and customise the attributes of your product models including dimensions, classifications, and links back to resources on your website.
But, that’s not all. This summer, over 5 and a half million signed-in users are now using 3D Warehouse for their designs! As a result, Trimble have made some cool improvements to the Warehouse to better suit product manufacturers.
There is now a designated place for manufacturers to showcase all their products that is like a digital showroom where people from all over the globe can explore, download, and spec.
So, lets take a look at what’s changed:
New and Improved Catalogues
To most a catalogue is a publication with a list of products and resources laid out in printed format. Well, our brand-new catalogues have a very similar structure, except they’re all digital. Product manufacturers now have a sleek, specific place where they can talk about their brand, showcase product lines, and, of course, feature their products. This means you’ll have a one-stop-shop to keep your models organised.
Custom Product Thumbnails
There are times when a SketchUp Pro thumbnail doesn’t quite capture the elegant details of your products. This feature has been around for a little while now, but not everyone is aware that you can add your own custom images as model thumbnails. Just choose a product beauty shot or rendering, go to the product page and edit the product. You’ll see the current thumbnail. Click on it and upload the product image you'd like.

Showcase your Brand
In keeping with the theme, there are a couple of updates that will help get your brand (and products) in front of the right users. SketchUp Pro is introducing a new Brand Page to help you navigate the 1,900 brands on 3D Warehouse. Users can browse to find the brand they’re looking for, search and filter brands by category and subcategory, and more options are still to come!
