Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

Does anybody know if creating the 3D model of an IKEA model may cause some copyrights problems ?

From the contact I had with Ikea recently, please do not use "Ikea" brand name and their furniture name in 3D model files, and do not create 3D models that look exactly as Ikea ones.

Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

I think Ikea would be happy to see this action. What better than free publicity within this program? I advice: keep the dimensions exact, and also give it its original name.
Who knows: when ikea gets a chapter of its own, SweetHome might get a big sponsor?

Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

Sorry digitalis, please read the mails I exchanged with Martin Goldberg, Project Manager at Ikea Sweden.
They have their own tool and are not interested by Sweet Home 3D. They also don't want us to use Ikea name and their products name. So please, respect their decision and their copyrights.

Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

Allright, understood!
I just burned all furniture produced by that certain Swedish company wink
From now on we will make our own furniture only.

Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

Do you think it would be possible to mine data from ikea home planner? I think it would be legal to tell people to download the planner, run some tool and so generate data file for sweet home 3d.

Btw. I am new to SH3D so I don't know what kind of data files are used in this tool. Is it described somewhere?

Thank you,

Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

Tomaso, please don't play this dangerous game: this way of doing is the best way to kill free software because their authors like me can't afford to be involved in legal proceedings with copyrights owners.
What you suggest is not data mining, it's reverse engineering and Ikea license is really clear about this:
[...]
You may not:
[...]
- reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, amend, modify, develop, translate, attempt to access any source code of software or create any derivative works (except as explicitly permitted above) from the Tool - or any material included therein;
- use any part of the Tool or any material included therein separated from the remainder of the Tool, either on a stand alone-basis or in conjunction with any software or data not forming part of the Tool;
[...]


Sweet Home 3D supports OBJ, 3DS and LWS format, as stated in furniture import wizard and help.

Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

Hello,

I found this web site while looking for 3D Ikea models, there are 950 models available, and the quality is great !

Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

Thanks Elodie for mentioning Polantis, except that downloading their models requires to be registered (but this is a minor problem), and these models are not colored at all in the formats supported by Sweet Home 3D (OBJ, 3DS, SKP transformed to DAE). sad

Re: Great Tool - IKEA Models

Hello,

I want to design my new office in Sweet Home 3D.

The plan was easy, now I want to where I put my desk.
I want to buy the furniture at IKEA, so I wanted to know, if there's anything from the IKEA Galant series for the planner.

Please give me note.

Thanks.

Best Regards.

Lukas
