Textures import

This page lists some sources of free texture images that you may import in Sweet Home 3D.

Libraries of textures

Sweet Home 3D lets you import texture images one by one, or by group of textures stored in SH3T files. A SH3T file is a library of textures with their description, and can be easily installed by double-clicking on it or by choosing Furniture > Import textures library menu item in Sweet Home 3D.
The following ZIP files contain a SH3T file you can import in Sweet Home 3D.

Textures libraries

Note that a SH3T file is just some kind of ZIP file, from which you can extract individual texture images with any ZIP tool. If needed, you may also create your own SH3T files with the downloadable Textures Library Editor.

Web sites with textures

The following sites offer some free texture images supported by the texture import wizard of Sweet Home 3D:

StarStarStar ambientCG (many seamless textures published in public domain, also available as SH3T libraries here)
StarStar Archive textures (very large choice)
StarStar Sharetextures (nice seamless textures published in public domain)
StarStar 3D textures (another site with seamless textures published in public domain)
StarStar Free Web Gallery of Tile-able Website Backgrounds (customizable seamless textures available under CC-BY license)
StarStar Plain textures (a large choice of textures but not all of them are seamless)
StarStar CG Textures (a large choice of textures but not all of them are seamless)
StarStar Blender for Architecture (interesting for sky textures)
StarStar Free the models (nice textures made by Sweet Home 3D contributor)
StarStar Museum Textures (nice choice of textures with a few seamless ones)
Star Alterlinks (a few simple textures)
Star (wood textures, most of them aren't seamless)
Star WDL (wall pattern textures)

To cover a surface with a texture that repeats itself like a wall pattern, prefer choosing a seamless texture.

To avoid reducing Sweet Home 3D performances, do not import images with a large resolution (generally, 256x256 pixels images already give good results). If you have to reduce the resolution of an image, you should prefer a better JPEG quality over a larger resolution.

Please respect the license of the textures that you may download on these web sites.
