- Now let's take a look at how Bitmaps and images…can be used as reference.…In this case, we're going to create a floor plan…of a building.…So typically, you get the floor plan…as an image file and then you have to bring that…into SketchUp, size it accurately…and then draw against it.…So in order to bring a texture in,…we need something to map it to.…So I'm going to go ahead and zoom out…and let's create a simple rectangle.…
Now the size and shape of the rectangle…isn't particularly important.…So let's just go ahead and draw something…like this, I guess.…Now we're going to resize this later,…so again, the scale isn't that important.…Now I need to apply my image to this rectangle.…So I'm going to import an image…through File, Import and you'll see that we have…a floor plan in our chapter nine folder.…
Now I want to import this as a texture,…so I'm going to go ahead and select Import…and just like we've done before,…all we have to do is lock that to the corner,…left-click and drag and then we have it.…Now notice how it tiles, and that's just because…
