Sketch Up Online: Texture Mapping Technics

Texture Mapping Technics

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 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.

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.

Brick mapping images now appear larger. Compared to people Which I want to adjust the size of the brick mapping, which can be done by following the steps in the FIGURE 5.

FIGURE 5

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.

AutoCAD: UCS Z Axis

For AutoCAD Tips, now it’s an adjustment technique. UCS (User Coordinate System) when creating work on an inclined plane in a way that aligns with the inclined plane Instead of being perpendicular, for example, there is a piece of solids on one side, as shown in the FIGURE 1. By default, it’s UCS/World.

FIGURE 1

Therefore, if you want to adjust the UCS to the inclined plane, you must use the UCS/Z Axis command in the UCS tool group as shown in the FIGURE 2.

The UCS/Z Axis command has the following steps:

After selecting the command, AutoCAD will allow us to set the starting point (Origin) to select the Endpoint, the bottom corner of the plane, position 1 as shown in the FIGURE 3.

FIGURE 3

The UCS Icon will start here. Then let us set the end point of the Z axis (Z Axis point) which is position 2 as shown in the FIGURE 3, then the UCS will come to rest. Parallel to the plane as shown in the FIGURE 3. Try rotating (Orbit) to change the view to the side. You can see the placement of the UCS Icon as in the FIGURE 4.

FIGURE 4

Create a circle around the midpoint on the long side of the workpiece. It can be seen that the inclined circular cross-section is at right angles to the inclined plane because the Z-axis angle is equal to the inclined side of the workpiece as shown in the FIGURE 5.

FIGURE 5

Then use the Extrude command to create cylindrical solids along that inclined plane for the next step.

FIGURE 6

That is, iterating with the Array command to create an orderly array of objects. equal distance per piece makes the work as shown in the FIGURE 7.

FIGURE 7

Then select the Subtract command to cut the pieces apart. by choosing to keep the larger workpiece according to the steps

FIGURE 8

Got the work as shown in the FIGURE 9. The detailed solids can then be created further.

FIGURE 9
FIGURE 10

In summary, the UCS/Z Axis command helps to make operations based on various planes very easy by just setting only 2 points, namely Origin and Z Axis.

AutoCAD: Array-Polar

Arranging workpieces into categories is done with the Array command (Modify command group) as shown in the FIGURE 1.

FIGURE 1

For now, we’ll talk about the Polar Array, experimenting with circular arrangements.

Start by creating Circle (Circle) up 2 pieces as shown in the FIGURE 2.

FIGURE 2

When selecting the Array command, there will be options as shown in the FIGURE 3.

FIGURE 3

Follow these steps:

1. Select the Polar Array first.

2. Click on the Select Objects heading, then come back and select the object you want to arrange.

3. Set the center point in the arrangement (Center point), select the Center of the large circle.

4. Come to the topic Total number of items to enter the desired amount.

5. Set the total angle in the arrangement (Angle to fill). In this case, enter 360, meaning that the arrangement is within 360 degrees or equal to 1 around the circle.

When enter, you will get output as shown in FIGURE 4.

It is a command that is used very often. There is also an Array / Rectangular option. and will be presented later.

Founder: Vin Jirawat

We have been apart for a long time for cadcom.net that still maintains the same content.

Even if we have to overcome the obstacles that come our way. We continue to strive for continuous improvement. To increase CAD content for everyone. To support working and learning in a new normal way. (Which should be commonplace by now).

We plan to continue adding more content and adding new software such as GStarCAD which is becoming increasingly popular. By making it a full online course, there will be premium content for members only, including private training, focusing on specific group content as well.
