Default Material

Geometry in SketchUp is assigned a default material as it is created. The default material can be changed by painting the geometry with a material.

Material Transparency

Materials also have an opacity property (a number between 0 and 100%) allowing you to create materials that behave like glass. Paint these materials on faces to create windows.

You create realistic SketchUp Materials from image files (such as .jpg pictures taken with a digital camera) using the Materials Browser.
