Библиотеки моделей и материалов для программы SketchUp

The lessons detail how to make almost all kinds of 2D and 3D models for successful and productive work in the program, however, if you want to speed up your workflow or cannot find the right ones, you can always pick up something in this section. I made most of the models myself, some I remade from collections for other programs or adapted them. All files are saved in an earlier version of the program Sketch Up 8 and will open in any subsequent.

* If you like models, textures and blanks for our programs, you can subscribe "School Sponsorand download them all for your work. Details at the link: Download all models and materials


2D plants on a transparent background, cropped along the contour, with the "Facing the camera" settings. All plants are sorted into categories, the species composition is indicated in each separate collection.


3D plants created specifically for SketchUp with low polygon count and repetitive parts as components


Thematic collections of landscape constructions and objects. Sorted into categories and created either directly in SketchUp or adapted for it.


Models of buildings from skyscrapers and high-rise buildings to small cottages and garden houses. Almost all were made for real projects or remade, without unnecessary elements and furniture inside.


Collections of materials for the SketchUp program in skm format. Image files for them were taken with sufficient resolution for a high-quality look, but without unnecessarily loading the program.

  • Components are created for repeatedly repeating scene elements. Their properties are inherited during cloning, and only one parent is completely in the program's memory, while the rest change only the coordinates, and sometimes the scale, which greatly reduces the "weight" of the scene.

  • When creating components, try not to include other groups or components in them to avoid multi-level editing by entering different groups in turn, or to avoid independent behavior of nested elements.

  • It is better not to use elements with a large number of polygons, edges, and high-resolution bitmap textures when creating components. Since they are repeated many times, they can create a large load when exporting or rendering in external programs.

  • It is also desirable to create materials in SketchUp from images with an average resolution, about 600-800 points on the largest side, and best of all from seamless textures.

  • For the convenience of searching and using materials and components, folders with them should be immediately correctly named and grouped into categories. SketchUp does not conflict with the Russian language, however, it may be difficult to replace materials in external rendering programs.

Saving and using 2D models in SketchUp (03:51)

Those who are interested in collections of models of plants and other objects for SketchUp. In what capacity are they, what are they for and how to work with them.

Editing the geometry and textures of 3D plants in SketchUp. Part 1 (5:12)

A few small tutorials in addition to the existing one about editing 3D plants: 

Editing the geometry and textures of 3D plants in SketchUp. Part 2 (9:53)

The second part of the lesson, in which I tried to tell you how to edit bitmap textures in plant models from collections published on the site and on Busti, as well as in all others.

Explanation to the collections of 3D trees for SketchUp (4:41)

A small feature of collections of 3D tree models is an additional layer with billboards for faster work.

Editing vines in SketchUp. Part 1 (6:07)

I decided to record a couple of auxiliary videos on how to work with 3D vines in SketchUp.
In the first, we consider various combinations of vine components. Of course, this is useful for working with any three-dimensional plants of the program.

To the collection: Creepers 3D on supports and without. Wisteria (12pcs)

Editing vines in SketchUp. Part 2 (6:07)

How to work with 3D vines in SketchUp. The second part of the tutorial is about editing textures.

To the collection: Creepers 3D on supports and without. Wisteria (12pcs)

Editing bush details (4:53)

A small instruction for the collection of 3D plants: Shrubs 3D. Set 3 (24pcs)   and others similar.
