I received a .dxf file of my house from EagleView. The file imported easily into Sketchup, but it remains a wireframe and I (being a complete newby with CAD) can’t figure out how to turn it into a structure to which I can apply textures (e.g. shingles to the roof). FYI, as a test, I created a simple box house with a two-slope roof from scratch, and was able to apply textures to it.
Under “View”, the Face Style is Shaded with textures. I’ve tried changing it to wireframe, saving it, reloading it, changing to Shaded with textures, saving, reloading, and still no ability to paint textures onto the walls or roof.
I would appreciate any advice / direction on how to get the wireframe to accept textures.
And as for where I want to go with this, I am hoping to be able to “paint” the roof shingle by shingle. Being able to apply a different color shingle to each facet of the roof would be a compromise, but my desire is shingle by shingle color control.
