Create new materials from any picture or swatch that you might have. You will learn to create your own libraries of materials and textures, and to modify colors and scales. Real word textures will be used for finishing, carpets, upholstery and curtains.

This course may be applied to any discipline, but all exercises are designed especially for interior designers, stage designers, and space planning focusing on the tools required to use SketchUp in those fields. With the acquired information in courses 1, 2 and 3 students should be able to create, organize and apply materials on any 3D model and take advantage of the capabilities of Google SketchUp and other photo-editing software.
