Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding materials to groundwork, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- I'm in Chapter 606, and we are finally going to…start adding some materials to our model.…I have my materials loaded,…and they're the project materials.…If you haven't got access to these, most of the materials…are available from the default materials…that get installed with the software.…So somewhere under concrete.…And you've got ground cover that'll do…the ground works, so you can follow along…just using different materials than…the ones that we've loaded into the software.…We'll start off with this big lump of earth…and that is this thick, so it's called Hard Core,…and we click on that.…
We're applying the material to the outside wrapper,…which just covers it in it's entirety.…We can't right-click and edit material in this case.…If we wanted to make this slightly tighter…or slightly looser, then we'd have to go…to Edit and just change this value.…We take it down to six and that'll tighten it up.…If we made it 15, let's say,…that'll make it slightly looser.…It's entirely up to you…what you have it at, but I'll set it…
