How to Download lower versions from 3D warehouse (2024)

As you all people know 3D warehouse does not allow to go down below 2021, now it won't even give you access to select the desired file version, it will by default download a 2022 version.

 

3dwarehouse won't let you chose version

Here is a quick trick to download the file to the most possible lower version (original file version), for the moment it is still possible to download 2020 and 2019 versions depending on the original file version, the trick is very simple we just need to copy the 3D model ID and paste it in the URL that I will show you.

We take this Sofa model as an example  : 

https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/287b1730-ba82-4e3e-a0e2-4798c927ff0f/Sofá-Arca

For a shared link it should look like this https://app.sketchup.com/app?3dwid=287b1730-ba82-4e3e-a0e2-4798c927ff0f

Steps :

1- Copy your 3d model ID , in our case it's 287b1730-ba82-4e3e-a0e2-4798c927ff0f

2- Paste and replace your 3d model ID in this URL were it says PLACE ID HERE

https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/warehouse/v1.0/entities/PLACE ID HERE/binaries/s20?download=true

3- Replace S20 with the desired version S19 for 2019, and so on down to the lowest possible version which is version S6 (depending on the original uploaded version).

4- Hit Enter, the download will start immediately 

5- Open your Sketchup file and enjoy !

And here is another example that shows it is still possible to download versions even as low as version 8.

https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/warehouse/v1.0/entities/8b684edd-05ce-4784-9128-e51a220336c0/binaries/s8?download=true

 Enjoy and spread the word (with your friends, Trimble would probably remove access, as they want you to pay and force you to buy new versions that do the exact same stuff as the previous Google ones)

  1. Funnily enough, your working example only has that single id assigned to that version.
    If you try to download it on version 9 or 7 it will not work.
    I've been trying with another id and it doesn't work, a DB is returning a callback with the message:
    {
    "message": "Binary with id 's10' does not exist",
    "errorId": "OBJECT_DOES_NOT_EXIST"
    }

    Maybe Trimble did remove all access except for your example lol...
