Texture Mapping

For most of the time we can't just use reflection and refraction to create a material for an object. For example: stone, wood, painting, package, sticky back paper and textile. We must use some texture maps to create these materials. Below are some examples of using texture map for rendering.

Texture Mapping example 1

Texture Mapping example 2

Open file: Texture-Mapping_01.skp. Render the scene directly after opened and you will get the result as the image on the top (below) with only reflection material applied to it. Image on the bottom is the result of applying texture maps.

example with only a reflection material applied

example with texture maps applied

1. Assign materials to the objects by using the paint bucket and Material Editor in SketchUp. You will notice the texture mapping is not to scale and not properly oriented by default.

Texture Mapping - Assigning materials - Step 1

2. Right-click on one surface, select Texture>Position to adjust the texture rotation and scale.

3. Scale and rotate the texture map as desired. Right-click and select done.

4. Click on the View menu and select Hidden Geometry in SketchUp. Repeat texture adjustment for one face of cylinder and sphere.

5. Select the eye dropper tool from the Materials rollout to sample the adjusted textures.

6. Using the selection tool, select all the geometry to be updated with the adjusted texture. Once selected, select the paint bucket and apply the texture to the geometry.

7. Open the Material Editor and you will see the materials already created.
