SketchUp is one of the most popular 3D design programs in the world, used by people for all their architecture, engineering, construction, woodworking, interior design, and film design needs. With more than 40 million registered users around the world, SketchUp has been around for 20 years now and is revered for its ease of use and rapid modelling capabilities. These make it easy for users to produce usable models in a fraction of the time it can take with other systems.

“A large portion of our user base enjoys how easy and intuitive SketchUp is for developing quick architectural visualisation,” Steve Guzmán, from SketchUp 3D Warehouse’s Architecture & Design Division, says. “A room can be built and, thanks to 3D Warehouse, decorated in a matter of minutes.”

Using 3D Warehouse, one of the largest and fastest-growing 3D model repositories in the world with over 4 million free components available for download, architects and designers can save time when it comes to specifying a project. Guzmán adds that for building product manufacturers, 3D Warehouse is like a free, digital showroom that supplements catalogues, trade shows, and physical showrooms. During this pandemic, more people are using SketchUp and 3D Warehouse than ever before.

To help all the architects, designers and even students who use PG Bison products in their work, we have loaded all our latest Gallery Three designs and colours, as well as all our other existing offerings, into 3D warehouse, so they can be used with SketchUp and other design programs.

Guzmán says that finding our verified content is easy. “3D Warehouse has a tab for “Products”. When a designer searches for PG Bison within the Products tab, only official PG Bison content is served,” he explains. “The imagery for PG Bison surfaces can be applied directly to models AND custom thumbnails can be added to each asset and/or collection if you prefer to show rendered or hero photography in place of the SketchUp rendered thumbnail.”

Here are our handy video tutorials to help you:
