Commercial shopfittings

Recommended Posts

Could some please direct me to somewhere where I could find shopfittings suitable for a large petrol (gas) station shop including refrigeration.

 

This should preferable be very easy to download and use from my library for I am very much a simpleton in matter of downloading and adapting technical things.

 

Thanks in advance.

KB-00888: Importing 3D Symbols

This Knowledge Base article has instructions on importing, as well as a link to the 3D Warehouse, which is probably the largest resource for free 3D symbols.

If you find a symbol you just want parts of, then its not too much more work to download and install the free version of SketchUp so you can delete the elements that you don't want, resave the symbol, and then import the new version to Home Designer.

You might want to use some non-specific search terms too, like the ones below as examples.

Thank you.  I found most of what I was looking for in the links above.  However, when I try and import the .skp file I get an error message.  I have tried the help data base but I can't seem to find a solution that will allow the import and the adding to my library.  :(

This most likely means that the skp file that you downloaded, was done in a newer version of sketchup  (that HD won't open).   :angry:

 

So, you have to download and install the free version of the sketch-up program.  :wacko: 

Then, open the symbol in sketch-up, and do a 'save as' sketch-up 8 for the symbol (in the drop-down menu).

If the symbol still won't open for you, do a 'save assketch-up 7.

 

Installing the sketch-up program isn't a total waste, because you will need to use it frequently to do a 'save as' for most symbols.
