Subhra Bera: Editor

3D Rendering and modeling is getting easier in SketchUp with the help of different materials and textures. There are different websites where SketchUp users can find their textures.

Justin Geis: Justin Geis is the founder of The SketchUp Essentials and started using SketchUp while he was working as a general contractor in 2008 and after using it he found that SketchUp is extremely powerful that he just started to use it in his personal works also. Then he started The SketchUp Essentials as a place where he could share his ideas of using SketchUp easily through some tutorials and tips to help other users controlling the power of 3D Modeling in everyday lives.

We all know that SketchUp models can be made easily with the help of textures but users can only download or find different SketchUp textures from SketchUp extension Warehouse.
