Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Apply styles, part of SketchUp 2016 Essential Training.
- If we want to add a little bit more visual interest…to our presentations,…we can use SketchUp's Styles.…Right now, we're using what's called the Default Style,…which is somewhat of a fairly realistic Style.…This is just basically the Style of the Edges…that we have, as well as the faces.…So right now, I'm just using Shaded with Textures,…as well as just basic Edges.…But we can change these using the Styles window.…On the Mac, you'll find it under Window Styles,…and here I have it in my Tray.…
So, I have a Styles window here.…This Styles window works kind of like the Components window…or the Materials Editor in that we have this pull-down menu…that allows us to select families of styles.…For example, under Assorted Styles,…we have all of these,…and if I were to click on one of these,…it would change our drawing to look like that Style.…So here we have kind of a blueprint style,…which is kind of neat.…
We also have something that's a little bit more…charcoal paint Style.…We can also go through other ones here.…We have what are called the Default Styles here.…
