Welcome to SketchUp, Vray and other Resources

Everyone is capable of learning. Learning is part of life. It is a social process of living and bringing everyone to share their inherited resources and discoveries. All of us can influence the life of others through sharing and caring. It is our belief that everyone should be a lifelong learner.

I am putting very important visualization resources and series: tutorials, tips, tricks, VRAY materials and settings, and mini-the-making (MTM) processes.

Tutorial: UV Mapping using UV tools for Sketchup and Road Kill

This a tutorial from Edgar Navas 'rodrigonotor"

First download UVTools from Sketchucation. Also download RoadKill
If your Antivirus detected  the second file as malicious file, do not worry.

The image below is always the result of jumbled mapping in SU irregular surface most of the times.

Select the whole surface

In the menu->Plugins->UVTools->Export UVs to OBJ


It is very important to remember where the file is being save.


Open Roadkill and load the file


 In RoadKIll:
ALT+Click Izq= Rotate
ALT+Click Medio=Pan
ALT+Click Derecho= Zoom

Click letter "E" to selection mode


Using the crossing window selection, select the surface, then adjust the mapping.


With the selection click letter "W" to join all surfaces

Save (in RoadKill) with same name and place, back to Sketchup. In Sketchup go to menu->Plugin->UVTools->Import UVs from OBJ


Import the UV and voila we have correct mapping.

  2. Hello! Sorry, but I had a problem trying to do this. I can't find UVTools. Where can I find the extension to install it? And... does it work with Sketchup 2013? Thanks
