Hello everyone,

can anybody show me how to texture a writing and a logo of a plane in SketchUp?


#2

I’m sure we can but you need to give more detail. Show us your SketchUp model so we can see what you are trying to do exactly.


#3

hello,
this is my model. I hope you can help me. I need the writing and the logo of the plane. I have marked it for you.

Do you have the logo of the airline as an image? You can apply it to the surface of the fuselage as a texture.

#5

can you perhaps post a video tutorial how to do it? my english is not so well.


#6

I’m sorry. I don’t have time right now to make a video for you but you can find lots of videos on this topic if you search You Tube. Start here.


#7

I have seen these video, but they couldnt help me…Please i would be so grateful to you if you show me.


#8

You’ll have to wait until I have time unless you want to hire me to do it.


#9

how long would it take for me to wait?


#10

Probably a few days or a week or so before I will have time to make a video.

The type of texture you’re adding is often called a decal, and you should be able to find videos on how to make those. Here’s one example (comes with classical music too):

As mentioned, there are many videos pertaining to the use of custom textures in SketchUp. I would advise you have a look at a few to familiarize yourself. That said, here is a quick video I created to help you see one way of applying a texture to a curved surface.
