* About Trimble 3D Warehouse, 3D models in KMZ format can be imported in Sweet Home 3D from version 4.4. Models only available in SKP/SketchUp format can be easily converted to DAE/Collada format by choosing File > Export > 3D Model… menu item in the free version of SketchUp.

// Tips //

  • To cover a surface with a texture that repeats itself like a wall pattern, prefer choosing a seamless texture
  • To avoid reducing Sweet Home 3D performances, do not import images with a large resolution (generally, 256 x 256 pixels images already give good results). If you have to reduce the resolution of an image, you should prefer a better JPEG quality over a larger resolution
  • If Sweet Home 3D refuses to import some of the ZIP files proposed on these sites, please unzip them first
