How to Resize Textures and Materials in SketchUp

In the present SketchUp speedy tip, we are going to show you how to modify the size of textures in SketchUp. Basically the entirety of a material’s traits is overseen in the materials area of the plate. For this situation, we’re going to discuss picture based textures.

The way SketchUp makes picture based textures is by rehashing pictures again and again to make a consistent looking texture. In the event that you take a gander at this CMU square texture, you can see reiteration of a similar picture on the off chance that you look carefully enough.

In the event that you look in the edit tab under this material, you can see down at the base that there are a few measurements in boxes. For this situation, this ash square texture is a rehashing texture 1’6 wide by 8 high.

On the off chance that we go in and change this, you can see that the texture picture size changes in our model. You can utilize this with photograph textures you import to resize texture pictures so they are to the correct scale for your model.

There’s likewise a picture of a chain off to one side of the measurements. For whatever length of time that the chain is solid, that demonstrates that the perspective proportion of the texture is bolted. This forestalls distortion of your picture.

On the off chance that you click on the chain so it seems broken, it opens the perspective proportion. This can permit you to extend your picture to change the way that it looks. Whether that you ever need to reset your texture size, essentially click on the bolts to one side hand side of the measurements.

To add detail and authenticity to your models, SketchUp empowers you to paint materials on faces. Materials are basically paints that have a shading and discretionary texture (characterized inside a picture document). For instance, in the accompanying figure, the roofing material has a blue shading and a texture that reproduces metal material. The siding and grass are likewise materials that have a shading and texture.
