I’m not sure if this is a Sketup skill or not.
I found the website of the company that manufactures the concrete block for my retaining wall. Unlike other companies, it doesn’t have this block available for Sketchup download, nor does 3D Warehouse have it (although the company is there).
The website has a pretty decent photo. I added the .jpg image to my materials library and added it to my image knowing it wouldn’t be that simple.
The image capture attached shows the two issues.
- the blocks aren’t to scale. Each block (two different colours) is supposed to be 8" wide and 4" high. My model is 13" high, so there should only be 3 full courses of blocks.
- The pattern is odd. That partial block need not be in there.
Is it possible to accomplish what I’m wanting to do? Is it something I can do in SU? Or do I have to do some photo manipulation in a photo editor? Is anyone aware of any good tutorials for doing what I wish to do?
