How to create a tent material?

Hi! I’m trying to create an event tent and can’t figure out how to apply material to my tent’s curved frame. I’m trying to create an model like this…

anyone have any tips?

Thank you!!!

There are several SketchUp extensions that you could use for this purpose, depending on the desired level of accuracy needed in the way the tent fabric settles where you desire. For your first bit of exploration, I highly recommend one of my all-time favorite SketchUp extensions: Soap Skin & Bubble


Thank you so much! This worked!
