In your 1rst column, did you try to adjust (increase) the size of the texture (Distance>Horizontal & Vertical)

 

Yes none of them have any effect on the texture at all as I stated before. Same with rotate, and scale, no effect.

It is super nice that we can use SketchUp along with SP. It'd be even better if the programs worked better together though. Your column on the right looks good.

I agree, it would be nice to not have to go through the extra step of exporting it to another format.

OK...will someone simply explain how to get imports into Softplan from 3D Warehouse NOT to have the little 2x2 squares (that can't be changed) and look like the column on the right in Brent's example?  Make it simple.....please.  Thanks

First you would download the model from 3D ware house into SketchUp

 

Then the way I made it work is in SketchUp go to File-Export-3D Model

 

In their you save the model as a .dae file to your Soft Plan 3D Symbols folder

 

Then do as normal in Soft Plan only you link the symbol to the .dae 3d file instead of the .skp ScetchUp file

I hadn't noticed it before, as I think most of my models are using solid colours as textures, however, doing a test with some of my own Sketchup drawings, I see them exhibiting the same issues. Thanks for the heads up with the DAE files
