Topic tags/keywords: sketchup wood library

Hi Guys

I hope there is a tech savvy lumberjock that can help me in this

I am looking to add more wood species into Sketchup Make 2016

And I found this from 2008 and I’m unable to completely understand the instructions

http://lumberjocks.com/projects/5652#comment-3583026

Can someone please give me a step by step in how to install this on my Sketchup software..

Oh I have the newest windows as an operating system

THANKS

“Edit (for another 37 minutes) This is exactly what I was looking for but although this was made in 2008 and now it’s 8 years later will it work for Sketchup Make 2016 on the newest windows .. Is there anyone that can give me step by step The original post states to go to
Tools > Paint Bucket I see the tools > paint bucket but there is no arrow that gives me the option of open or create a library I really hope I can adapt this PLEASE HELP—Ed

Easier way. Those materials are in a model in the SketchUp 3D Warehouse. Search for akb wood species or use this link: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model.html?id=12caa5ffb27ae6aac2e6b25689767769

Download the file into an empty SketchUp model.
Open the Materials window and click the “Details” button. that’s the “arrow looking thing” mentioned above.
Find the folder where SketchUp stores materials and select though the file browser.

That saves all the materials to the designated folder for use in other models. Many thanks to Edward F. for creating this in the first place and making it available.
