From here simply type in the content you are looking for.  As an example - type in a generic search for car and the next screen will give all the models in the 3D warehouse using the word car in their description

If this is a model you like, click Download Model and the model will be loaded directly into your project.  This procedure can be repeated for whatever you are looking for and you can generate projects quickly and efficiently from user provided content.
