Ever wish there were a way to put a dinosaur in your CET drawing? No? Well I have. And maybe you're not interested in pre-historic reptiles, but you MAY have some interest in bringing in symbols that CET doesn't have graphics for. Let's say you're drawing an office that has a popcorn machine. Unfortunately, there are no popcorn machines in our free Extensions or manufacturer Extensions - we're working on that. In the meantime, that would be the type of thing you can get at the SketchUp 3D Warehouse!
The SketchUp 3D Warehouse is your one-stop-shop for all the graphics you could ever want. Essentially, people who use SketchUp can draw anything and upload it to the 3D Warehouse for other people to use for free.
When you install the SketchUp Extension, you can access the 3D Warehouse right in the tab. This will open a window directly to the Warehouse.
Now let's walk through the steps to finding what you need. We'll use an example a little more tame than a dinosaur, I suppose. How about a coffee maker?
Once you are in the 3D Warehouse, you can browse or search for whatever object you would like to bring into CET.
When you search, there are a few different categories of results you can browse through. Some manufacturers create models of their products, so if you are searching for a specific product, stay in the Products tab. For generic symbols, go to the Models tab.
