Sorry my mistake, I meant select make group.
Dragging a texture into Sketchup
What I do is make a square somewhere off to the side away from the model. Depending on the texture used determines the size square, a little trial and error is required to get the rigght size. Solid colors will work equally well in a 4'x4' square, or a 20'x20' square.
Once you have this square, click file, import, select your texture, click open. Then you drag the texture over this square from one corner to the diagonally opposite corner.
In the screen below and the ones that will follow I will show you what I mean. Here are the steps I took so far:
1. I made a simple 10'x10'x10' cube for this series of screens
2. I have already gone into the file system and opened my selected texture - in this case a red color
3. I am dragging the selected texture onto the square
In the following it shows how it looks when you have finished dragging:
Now open the paint bucket and select the eye dropper tool (red arrow):
Using the dropper tool (green arrow), move it over the square and click to sample the texture:
After the texture has been sampled, the eye dropper tool will change to the paint bucket and you will see the texture in the paint bucket menu:
Now all you have to do is apply the texture to the face with the bucket:
You do this with all the textures. Then After
applying all the textures and Before
grouping, delete the extra square and proceed with grouping the textures.
