Furniture libraries 1.8

On December 19, 2020, furniture libraries were updated with 100 additional 3D models.

New 3D models

This update contains various kinds of models designed by Sweet Home 3D, Scopia and Blend Swap contributors. It includes many objects for the kitchen, some additional trees and other outdoor objects, as well as new windows and some Japanese style objects. The following image shows all the new models and I hope you'll find them useful.

The kitchen objects contain a new set of customizable cabinets, various appliances and more food models to let you design lifeful scenes.

Exterior models include rocks and new trees, with various appearances according to the season of your choice.

Winter is coming in the Northern hemisphere, but users living in warmer countries will probably appreciate the new models designed to furnish a deck.

Translated keywords

When the Searchable list option is selected in the preferences pane, Sweet Home 3D lets you look for an item among the furniture catalog by typing some letters of its name. In version 4.2, was added the ability to search items with associated keywords too, but these keywords existed only in English and French translations until now. 
This time, they were also added in Bulgarian, Czech, Finnish, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish translations of the furniture libraries, thanks to the help of the great community of Sweet Home 3D translators and a little application I programmed to simplify the boring task of adding keywords.

Search of heating items in Bulgarian

Keep in mind that among these keywords, there are two special ones:

  • Adjustable: this keyword is used for items with a shape that can be modified with the Modify openings / Modify posture button in their modification dialog box.
  • Default: this keyword is used for the 100 items of the default furniture catalog (note that the keywords associated to the items of the default furniture catalog will work in translated versions only in the next version of Sweet Home 3D).

Download new models and furniture libraries

The additional models are available at the free 3D models page and in the updated SH3F furniture libraries (I also managed to reduce the file size of many older models without losing details). Use the following links to download the updated librairies:

These SH3F files are (partially or fully) translated in Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Vietnamese.
The furniture catalog available in the Java version of Sweet Home 3D Online and in the paid versions of the Windows Store and the Mac App Store was also updated to propose the 1500 models now available. Like during recent updates, the new Scopia 3D models are copyrighted jointly by Emmanuel Puybaret / eTeks and Scopia Visual Interfaces Systems.

Many thanks to all the designers and the translators for their contribution to free models.
Keep safe, warm and healthy!

This furniture is well designed, but lacks a touch of fashion.

Thanks a million for this awesome app, guys. I know it's free but I still purchased it from the Microsoft Store to show my appreciation and support your work :)

Re: Furniture libraries 1.8

What a wonderful package!

Re: Furniture libraries 1.8

Have been using this Awesome App and Add-Ons since 2015. Really happy to know that it keeps being maintained & updated beautifully. Thanks for the great work!

Re: Compatibility

I just loaded version 7.1 / 15.0.10 on to an M1 Mac Mini running Big Sur and it runs like a dream, that's impressive! For me this means I can run Sweet Home 3D on my new mini and also on my old Mac Pro tower running 10.6.8 and work in two locations sharing the projects via a cloud storage folder. This might not mean much to a lot of people but it is important to me to be able to work on both computers and I cannot upgrade the old Mac because I have some very expensive dongled software that won't run on any OS over 10.6.8. As far as I know there are no other drafting apps available at any price that can do this. It is amazing that this high quality app is free. High praise to the developers and the community that support Sweet Home 3D! I will be donating.

Re: Compatibility

Thanks for your comment. I’m really pleased to read that the version for Mac OS X 10.6.8 is useful for you, because I wonder sometimes if supporting such a wide variety of operating systems is really worth it.
