Creating new Library Items

Recommended Posts

Dear forum,

 

Is it possible to create my own 3D items and put them in a User / Custom Library if I cannot find specific items in the provided libraries that I am looking for (for example, I have a full line of Miele kitchen appliances I would like to model and then place in a kitchen design)?

You can create items using SketchUp and possibly other programs and place them in your library.

If the Miele line you have, is .skp extension, can you PLEASE somehow let me have it? PLEASE? I've only got some european models I'm not pleased with and you would me a huge favour.

If you have Chief Architect Premier X7, then you could model everything and convert it in to a symbol in your User Library.

With Home Designer, you'd need to use SketchUp and then import the symbols (just keep in mind that they won't insert in to cabinets and whatnot like they would in Chief).

Actually creating the items from scratch might be a lot of work though, so it depends on how committed you are to modeling the exact same thing that you actually have, when you might be able to find something "close enough" in the software already, or by searching the 3D Warehouse.
