I found a great tutorial by Tammy Cody on YouTube to create a repeating tile pattern. However, I realized that she is using Sketchup for Interior Decorating and I am using Sketchup Pro.
I tried to recreate what she did and it worked…sort of. I can’t repeat the tile block like she did and when I try to scale it, it distorts whereas hers didn’t.
Is there an extension that I can download that can help me create tile patterns specifically for backsplashes in kitchens and bathrooms. My husband and I are opening a cabinet shop and I am trying to master this last step.
I will be grateful for any help that anyone can give.
That’s not a SketchUp version, I think that’s just the name of her YouTube channel. Do you have a link for which video? I skimmed an interesting one where she does all the texture creation within SketchUp which is interesting new territory to me. I recently made tile patterns, but as a photographer, my pathway was to do it in Photoshop.
You can certainly model the tile pattern in SketchUp. I did that for this example. There are initially three tile components for this, shown on the left. I arranged the tile components as in the middle, exported an image from SketchUp and used that image to create the texture shown to the right. The reference image is above the rest. It is slightly distorted and of rather low resolution.
