Using Unique Textures in a Dynamic Component

PRO This is a Pro only feature.

Dynamic Components that use unique textures (textures that do not ship with SketchUp, such as photographic textures of a specific material), must be embedded in the Dynamic Component to be accessible when that component is used on different computers. To embed a texture in a Dynamic Component:

  1. Create your Dynamic Component.
  2. Create a small face (it can be as small as a few millimeters) on the component that is not visible to the user. For example, create a face on the bottom of a couch component.
  3. Apply the unique texture to the face. The texture is now embedded in the component and will be available to all users of the component.
