Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding materials to the window, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- So in chapter 6-10, we going to add materials…to the window and that's going to include this sill…and the cavity closer.…We'll do the easy bits first.…Let's start with the cavity closer, and select that color.…Paste that onto this.…Now if we double click, we can select the surface…and apply the insulation to it there and there.…So that's that bit done.…Then we'll deal with these bricks.…Now the bricks are slightly different.…We wouldn't nest the mortar in these…so if we double click to get into this,…we can either just individually click on these…with a brick color or we can double click…and then triple click,…and then apply that to that.…
Then hit Escape so we can just step back one,…and then select this one,…and again we've got the option of either clicking…and applying this individually…or I could have double clicked to edit that piece of mortar,…triple clicked, and then selected one.…But as I had a sort of unique one at the end,…it's probably just as quick to do it that way.…It doesn't take long either way.…
