3D Warehouse not only gives users access to
millions of 3D SketchUp models, but users also have direct access to browse and import
the materials and textures that are contained within those models. As you may already know, when a component
is imported from 3D Warehouse into your project file, all of the materials for that component
come along for the ride and are then accessible from the In Model library of the Materials
window. This approach is awesome when you
want to bring in a whole bunch of stuff to
play with, but it can also quickly result in your SketchUp models becoming bloated with
all sorts of things you don’t want or need. For those times when you have a more specific
material in mind, you also have the option to view a component’s In Model materials directly
on 3D Warehouse. Just click the materials link in the stats
panel of a Model details page. From here you can view a list of the materials
along with a bit of info about each one. When you find the one you re looking for, simply
click the Download link. SketchUp will retrieve the material from 3D
Warehouse, and automatically activate the Paint Bucket tool with the material loaded and
ready to go. Click on the surface that you want to apply
the material to, and that’s it, you’re done! Explore more at 3dwarehouse.sketchup.com

    Thanks for sharing. With such a general title, surely there is more to explore with the materials manager?

    I like this option but find that it is not that reliable. Some models say there are materials but clicking on the materials link doesn't show all the materials and at times no materials show at all. Any explanation for that?
    I posted this issue on the blog but it seems that my comment was deleted. Hope that doesn't happen here on YouTube.

    Ive used sketchup for many years now. the one thing i keep hoping for is some sort of material organizer.
    I often work with models that contain 100+ materials. its always a pain to have to scroll thorough all of the file materials to find what im looking foor.
    I just wish we could group them similar to how you group layers in photoshop

    PLEEEEASE, if you can add this it'd be great 🙁
