Sketchup Color Library Index?

colorwheel

#1

Is there an index anywhere that lists all the Sketchup colors (H13, C03, Salmon, MediumAquamarine, etc) in RGB? For example, what color is the default “background” color - both the name and the RGB code?

(If you’re wondering why I ask, well - it’s because I’m quite colorblind and often have difficulty matching colors in Sketchup with colors outside of Sketchup by eye, but the RGB codes never change)!


#2

There isn’t an existing index of the colors by their RGB values. I’m not an expert with Ruby scripting but it might be possible to create a script that could generate such a list.

As for the “default” background color, there are different background colors depending upon the selected style. And the user can customize the background color, too.

Would it be helpful if you had a different library of colors that already has published RGB values?

What version of Sketchup are you using? You left that out of your profile.

for SU’s named colours, this is what you obtain see from ruby…
