Filling a section is one thing, creating real good looking plans is another.
With Skalp Styles you can step it up.
A Skalp Style is similar to a Sketchup style as it is kind of a recipe to determine the look of a Skalp section.
You can opt to go for some real easy basic scenario’s or you can dig in deeper and tailor a style exactly to your needs.
Some examples: Suppose you need a floor plan at 1:48 with multiple nice hatchings and colors. You can set this up using a Skalp Style, store it on a Scene and have that Scene referenced in Layout. Now, what if you want to print the same plan on a smaller scale with a simplified preliminary look? Instead of creating a new Section cut you can now simply duplicate the original Scene and directly start tweaking its Skalp Style. The section cut itself will still be live and shared across both scenes.
Maybe you need a construction detail with nice hatchings but then adapted to a larger printing scale?
And so on…
This is what Skalp Styling is all about.
Since all SketchUp users have their own way of working, Skalp offers several workflows to adapt and be tailored to your use-case. Practical examples are given in a range from very easy and basic use cases, up to more advanced scenario’s. But first let us look at the Skalp Styles user interface.
