Texture Mapping Technics

After choosing to use the Paint bucket to select the material (Material) that will be added to the workpiece. Many times, it is found that the selected material does not meet the requirements, such as the position or size that needs to be adjusted to the correct proportion.

Sketch Up has a feature to help manage material texture in terms of adjusting the position or size that needs to be adjusted to the correct proportion with the following steps.

To understand the process, I created a backdrop.

Then 1 use the Paint bucket command as shown in FIGURE 2.

FIGURE 3

2 Choose a material in the group Bricks, Cladding… named Brick Antique 01 as shown in the FIGURE 3 to put it on the surface of the created back drop as shown in the FIGURE 4.

Brick mapping images now appear larger. Compared to people, I want to adjust the size of the brick mapping, which can be done by following the steps below.

After selecting a command, Sketch Up will display four symbols (A,B,C,D) for adjusting the detail of the mapping image, as shown in the FIGURE 6.

FIGURE 6

A: Drag Pin to move texture. Click the pin and drag the mouse to reposition the texture.

B: Drag Pin to Scale/Shear texture Click on the pin and drag the mouse to adjust the scale or shear texture.

C: Drag Pin to distort texture. Click the pin and drag the mouse to distort the texture.

D: Drag Pin to Scale/Rotate texture. Click the pin and drag the mouse to scale or rotate the texture.

This time, I want to resize and rotate the texture to an angle of 45 degrees, so select D, drag the mouse and the texture size is reduced in real time as in the FIGURE 7.

FIGURE 7

Then twist the mouse to rotate the texture to an angle of 45 degrees as shown. When finished, click the right mouse button and select the done command.

FIGURE 8

From all steps, we can get the job with the desired texture. By adjusting from the original to make the work more detailed, try this method and try different topics to see how each one works out.
