Using a texture instead of geometry. If you want to actually model upholstery look at https://www.marvelousdesigner.com/ 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. https://extensions.sketchup.com/en/content/subd

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:
