Where to download more Varieties of Layout PNG patterns?

Postby davewong » Sat Jan 18, 2020 6:51 pm

I need more sketchup's layout pattern fills. More varieties, like wood-grains pattern, earth/ground patterns etc etc.

May I know where do I get more of it? I have no time to draw them myself :(

You can search for 'pattern fill png' and find lots of options. You may need to edit them in an image editor to make the background transparent. You could also find vector fills and hatches that you could import into LO or SU. Then export a PNG image, crop it if needed and add it as a new fill in LO. And you could make your own in either LayOut or SketchUp. I usually do the latter when I need custom fills.

You can easily create them directly in LayOut!

Open a document and set the dimensions of the page to say 200mm x 200mm with NO margin and ensure Print Page Colour is unchecked. Suggest you set the grid as 5, 10 or 20mm so you can reference each edge where the texture will tile.

Draw your texture with lines of required thickness and set line ends to round or square to ensure they pass the edge of the page. Export as PNG as this will provide an alpha background.

Import back into layout as a hatch to check. Adjust line weights on the original and export and test again.

Layout is the ultimate tool to create textures!!!
