I am fairly new to Sketchup, first disclaimer, totally new to 3D Design and just got my first 3D Printer.
I am looking at making war game terrain 3D printed.
I am looking at making South East Asian straw/rough thatch buildings, roofs and walls.
While designing the buildings has been successful adding the straw/thatch effect has not.
Here is a sample of what I would like to get:
The guy who did this did it in blender and told me he did it by:
" I searched for textures using google images. when I found a good one, I used the displace feature of blender to create the straw texture."
How do you experts suggest I do this in Sketchup?
