Adobe publishes a free plug-in for Google 3D Warehouse

The plug-in, published for free on the Adobe Lab website, allows Photoshop CS3 Extended users to search and download models from Google 3D Warehouse without having to open a browser window. It was developed to extend Photoshop CS3 Extended editing tools and capabilities for 3D-based content.

The plug-in converts the 3D model viewed in Google 3D Warehouse into a Photoshop CS3 Extended compatible format, then opening the model as a 3D layer. Adobe Labs recognizes a number of limitations and issues related to this version of the plug-in, so it is recommended that you read the annotations carefully before downloading and using such software.
