Our new website is finally online!
Sketchup texture become an CLUB 

It has been a very demanding work that required a lot of time, and it was not easy to plan, organize, and think of everything, but finally, here we are!

our news website sketchup texture

The creation of this web site, is a natural consequence, which arises from the need to:

better safeguard our materials.
Since many blogs and facebook pages, have illegally copied all of our content, uploading them on their sites and passing them off as their content, copying our form, and our logo, in an obvious attempt to impersonate us, we had to resort to obligatory registration. This does not save us from internet pirates and by those who live annuity exploiting the work of others, but certainly allows us to better safeguard our materials;

better organize all the available material,
because with the blog we have many limits. In particular as regards the storage of files. Given the amount of materials, today we need to have our virtual warehouse in which to store all the material, present and future;

make the site navigation easy and professional

for all those who are looking for textures or other specific materials. All our materials are improved and rebuilt, and today, many textures, are also available in high resolution.

At this link , you will find useful information for understanding how to best utilize the site as it works, and what are the options you have.
We have to load still many textures, currently lack the texture of fabrics and carpets and a part of the texture of tiles, which will load a little at a time over the next few days, but are available now about 50,000 new textures, all seamless. in medium and high resolution
We have yet load many of the 3d models, which are still currently-available on our blog, being very large files, this operation takes a long time, so will be uploaded a little at a time, day by day.

Offer a broad international view for top CG artists and designers
to promote their artworks through the section " 3D ARCHVIZ" and "3D MODELS" , 
2 international portals that wants to thrust excellences in our Community.
For the best CG Artists, it will be really a great opportunity to be present. The portals are supported and sponsored by the most famous Italian design companies, and will become an international point of reference, thanks to the action of marketing's to which the site will be subject.

We're always refining our services to encounter all kind of professional requirements. 
Every suggestions and counsel will be keep in consideration. Meanwhile we would thank all of you for your time and participation.

We wish you good work and good surfing.

sketchup texture news - works in progress !

Hello Guys ,
As you may have noticed, it is slowing down a little activity on the blog and on our Facebook page , because we are working hard to finish the section of the new website dedicated to the textures.

After three months, by working about 10 hours a day, I am only half the job. To upload them, you need to catalog them and index them and code them one by one, and it is an endless work because there are over 20,000 .

Many textures, have been redone with a higher resolution. So I think that, to accelerate the work, we'll have to load the material in in 2 different times, and In any case, we need at least 40 working days to complete the first part .
Then however we will have a very nice website and very practical to use.
I ask you to bring a little patience. Thanks for your time !
