Wrong material reference


#1

I am working with a sketchup model made by someone outside my company, and when I open it, most of the materials are referencing files on my computer with the same name, but they are the wrong file. I have seen this happen with Google Earth files, but now it’s happening with other materials.

Should I ask them for the material maps?

The raster images used in the materials in a SketchUp model are embedded in the model file, so in principle you don’t need to have access to the original texture file. If you need to save a copy of the texture image used in a material in your model, you can right-click on it in the In Model tab of the Materials browser and select “Export texture image” from the context menu.
