How to import tiles in sketchup


Comment by Terence Sill

whoo what's up guys Justin here with these sketch of essentials come back with another sketch up architectural modeling tutorial for you so in today's video I wanted to show you how to preview flooring materials in a space using a couple different methods so this is something that I've been doing personally because we're looking at flooring materials for a space in our house and I'm going to talk through a couple different ways you can preview those materials inside of Sketchup so let's go ahead and jump into it and so when you're looking at a space like this one and you want to just do a quick preview of different flooring materials there's a couple different ways that you can go about it and so a lot of the time you can get images for different flooring materials by going to different websites online but you get varied amounts of information and so what I wanted to do is talk through two ways that I have previewed flooring materials inside of a space in our house so the first is I'm gonna pull over a website where we've been looking at a flooring material so this is a flooring material that we've been looking at for a space and so ideally what we would like to see and we don't necessarily see it on this one but what we would like to see is we'd like to see a texture that we can download right so this isn't going to be very good right here because it doesn't actually accurately reflect the floor right so we've got some images over here that kind of show what the floor is going to look like but they're at kind of a weird perspective and it's not something we can really apply as a texture and then so for this one we have to look at what we have available well in this situation what we have available is we have an image that reflects one of the tiles right so instead of having like a texture like this one that we can apply we do have something where we can actually see one of the tiles in here and so what we can do because we have the dimensions of this tile is we can use this in order to model out our flooring and so I'm gonna do this a very quick way because I really just want to see what the space is gonna look like with the flooring material I don't necessarily care about it being perfect because it's a quick preview if you guys are interested we can talk a little bit more about making it perfect in the future but what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go in and I'm gonna model out a bunch of eight and a half inch wide by 47.6 inch long vinyl planks so the way we're gonna do that is we're going to Sketch up and we're just going to start and again remember that we're just looking for a quick previews all we want to do we're gonna start by modeling out a plank so I'm just gonna draw a line that's gonna be forty seven point six inches right here I'm gonna draw another line it's gonna be eight point seven inches and then we can just tap the R key and use the rectangle tool in order to make this a plank and so then if we look at the product data this plank I believe is it's seven millimeters thick which I really wish they wouldn't mix metric and imperial like this but that's gonna give me a thickness of about 0.28 inches so we'll just extrude this up 0.28 and then what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna triple click on this in order to select it I'm gonna make it a component and we'll just call it vinyl plank and so all I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna make a copy of this plank right here using the move tool in copy mode so tap the M key click on the corner move your mouse and tap the control key in order to go into copy mode and then I'm just gonna type in once I've clicked again I'm going to type in times 7 and hit the enter key what that'll do is that'll create seven copies you can see how that gave me a little bit too much that's okay you can just erase out your extra and I'm not gonna bother erasing this out because I literally just want to see what this tile is going to look like and so let's go ahead and apply a material remember because we made this a component if we apply a material to one of these or make it change to one of these all of them will change so what I'm gonna do is I'm going to download that material and you can usually do that just by clicking finding a material and then right clicking on it and clicking save image as again we're using this just for internal usage I have no idea what the rules are for like commercial usage so if you do that I don't necessarily know if you should do this or not I can't really make a determination one way or the other for previewing your tile in our house I think it ought to be fine to save this image we're just gonna save this JPEG image in this folder so we're gonna click on save and what that's going to do is that's going to save this and we can then import it as a material so the way that I'm going to do that is I'm just going to click on the plus button right here and remember that we're in the material section of our tray and what we want to do is we want to go find that material image file so in this situation that file is right here we're just going to double click on it and then click on OK and so now we can take this and we can apply it to this image you're gonna notice right away that it doesn't give us the result that we want that's ok we're gonna go in and we're gonna edit this so notice that I've applied this to this face specifically I have not applied it to the outside of the group this is actually on the raw face right here well then what I can do is I can right click on this go into my texture settings and I can use the position texture settings in order to adjust this and so notice how when I click position texture I get these pins in here well I'm just gonna right click click on rotate and then click on 90 degrees so that allowed me to rotate this well now what I want to do then there's a couple different ways you can do this so in this situation what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna single click on this pin and then I'm gonna find the corner of my material right here so I'm single clicking moving my mouse and then clicking again and then you can click and drag in order to place this so the red one allows you to move this well then we can take the green one and put it on the other corner where this material starts to tile and then we can just click and drag that up until this tile material fills this whole face so notice how this whole face is now full and I can hit the inner key and that's basically going to apply the tile material well the cool thing about this is because this is a component if I click out of this what you're gonna notice is this wood floor material got applied to all of these tiles well then I'm just gonna use the move tool and copy mode and again remember I'm not trying to be super precise with this some of this is gonna stick out of my out of my house model and that's okay I'm just gonna use the move tool in copy mode tap the control key and I'm just gonna copy all of these until they're aligned with the midpoint right here so notice and now what I have is I have this wood tile material in here and again it's not perfect but I don't really care about going thr
