How do I get grain textures in SketchUp?
Sure, Donald. You're just a few mouse clicks away:
In SketchUp, choose Windows, then Materials to display the Materials list panel. To add the texture to the Wood list, select Wood from the top drop-down menu. Then, in the Color drop-down menu, choose New Texture, as shown above. Navigate to the textures that you downloaded from our site and choose a wood image. In the dialog box that appears, type in a name for your texture and give it a scale size. (Ours are about 6×6".) Then click OK.
Now, when you choose the paint-bucket tool, your texture will be waiting for you in the materials list. Simply select the grain and click on the project part you'd like to texture, as shown above.
