Good way to model upholstery?

What would be a good way to model upholstery like this on the image?

Using a texture instead of geometry. If you want to actually model upholstery look at but good luck getting the mesh back into SketchUp without cleaning it up first.

Lol. Really?
So it’s not possible to model this on SU?
I was hoping to see a list of plugins.

It’s possibe of course, it’t just not efficient.

Try SubD plugin. that’s how I would do it.

The “soap” bubble plugin is a good one for this, but could be done other ways. This video is a good resource.


Another method is to draw it low poly, then smooth the edges.

Nice modeling concept. If one was to create a component from it, it would be easy to apply and array across a surface :slight_smile:
