Did you look in the Library?

 

Search the forum for vehicle?

 

Check the 3D Warehouse?

I have looked all thru my library

 

Did you find anything? There a bunch there in the core catalog.

 

Try searching this forum -- search is at top of page.

 

Google 3D Warehouse. It's a repository of SketchUp symbols you may import.

I typed in vehicles in the forum and had no results, I typed in vehicles in my core catalog and had no results, I have looked thru my 3-D library to download any vehicles and the only thing I found was 2 funny looking cars. I will try the 3-D warehouse. Thanks for trying to help me, Bill

What version of the software are you running?

There are cars and trucks in the core catalogs

and there are more in the bonus catalogs. Here

is where the core catalog vehicles are found.

I have the X-5 version, I just looked in my core catalog and I don't have the exterior drop down. I have the interior one but not the exterior. I had to reinstall my whole system a week ago cause my hard drive went out and i am sure it was there before

Solver, not sure what I'm doing wrong but when I stroll up and type vehicles I get only the two that I wrote not the 26 you showed me. Not sure where I'm going wrong, Bill

If you go to Chief's 3D Library you can download their

Vehicles content. It says that they go back to version X4.

BTW, have you tried just updating your core catalogs?

Select "Library">"Update Library Content". I assume it

was an option in X5.

Don't know what to say Bill. I haven't downloaded that catalog.

The Project Description for the download says "...you'll also find

cars and trucks, even some emergency vehicles". There is a

significant difference between the file sizes of the downloads

for X5 vs. X9. Maybe everything isn't available for X5. Suggest

that you contact technical support on Monday. If you can talk to

Nigel, he is the man. He will sort it all out for you.

Upgrade to X9 if you can, you are missing out of a lot of tools to draw faster ,and works much better.

Drawzilla and ericepv thanks for the info, I would like to update to x9 but don't have the 1,300 to do it with. But I did try the 3D warehouse and got it downloaded to then find out it does not work with the 64-bit application I have. I guess I need a 32-bit version. I'm wondering if I will ever get that truck in my garage. Thank you all Bill Kirby
