How to access 3D warehouse files in STYLY

The Google 3D Warehouse gives you access to millions of 3D web-based models so a user can upload or download them in SketchUp. There are vast oceans of 3D content available in layers with each layer containing catalogues.

The 3D Warehouse is a data source to 3D models from real-world architects, game modelers and designers. These catalogs are benefitting designers and consumers to visualize their specifications for the 3D content.
