Including textures to your SketchUp fashions can assist to offer you a greater thought of how the completed challenge may look. In a latest on-line lesson my scholar requested for some hints about dealing with a few totally different texturing methods.
Within the first case he wished to indicate a number of parts as in the event that they have been made of 1 piece of wooden. The entrance apron with the inset drawer entrance on this desk is an efficient instance of that form of factor.

Within the second case the thought is to make a single part look as if it’s been glued up from a number of items of wooden. I did that with the highest on this desk. The video reveals how I did each of those.
