Textures libraries 1.0

Bored by the default textures available in Sweet Home 3D? Looking for nice seamless textures? Need of freely redistributable textures to create 3D models?
Here are the first two textures libraries for Sweet Home 3D. Released on the 24th of February 2014, they contain 84 texture original images designed by Scopia and me.

From the ground to the sky, these new textures should cover many needs and help you get more realistic scenes. The two libraries and the images they contain are distributed under the Creative Commons CC-BY license to let you redistribute freely the home files where you used these textures, as well as create nicer redistributable 3D models. Using Gimp or other image tools, you can even create derived versions easily, for example by exchanging colors.

The following images show decoration changes applied on two rooms of the SweetHome3DExample3.sh3d home file available in the gallery.

New textures

Here are the 84 new textures sorted by category.



Floor tiles


Leather and fabric

Download textures

You can import individually the texture images shown above, or download all of them as SH3T textures libraries with the following links:

These SH3T files may be installed by choosing Furniture > Import Textures Library... from the menu, and are translated in Bulgarian, Chinese, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. The textures catalog available in the Sweet Home 3D Online was also updated to let users access to the new textures.
Note that the textures in Textures-eTeksScopia-1.0.zip file are copyrighted jointly by Emmanuel Puybaret / eTeks and Scopia Visual Interfaces Systems.

 Thanks for all your work and nice textures.

Re: Textures libraries 1.0

everytime I try to download what is said to be free downloads I get a message that says they are not free and must be purchased. Am I doing something wrong. How do you open these files?

Re: Textures libraries 1.0

I don't understand how you could get this message. The texture libraries available at SourceForge.net are distributed under Creative Commons license and are free.

Re: Textures libraries 1.0

If you downloaded the zip files, uncompress them first and follow instructions contained in the README.TXT file they contain along with the .sh3f file.
If you want to import only texture images one by one, save texture images shown in the blog article and use the wizard shown by Furniture > Import texture menu item.
