Hello! I downloaded the area I need (this is Moscow, Russia) from mapzen.

Then I filtered buildings only (thanks for solution). For now my osm file has about 500mb size.

But now I want to visualize buildings in 3d and convert it to kmz/kml for google earth.

The solution I found doesn't work for big files.(osm->obj(with osm2world), obj->kmz(with SOLA G2)

Any advice?

Could you detail what "doesn't work for big files" actually means? It may be simply a question of throwing more hardware at the problem.

This forum thread has some background for this question.

As I mentioned in that thread, you will have to split the osm file into smaller parts if you want to use OSM2World – a 500 MB input file is too much to render at once, even with more hardware. I've been using mapsplit for this purpose when I set up my online map, but you might prefer other tools. In any case, you also need to think about recombining the result and removing duplicated buildings in the process, which is not trivial.
