Image Prop - Is it 3-D?

Recommended Posts

I was under the impression that an Image Prop would be a flat 3-D object; that is with 0 extruded value. Try as I may, I cannot seem to make a an Image Prop an object in 3-D space I can move around.

Is there a way to import an image that will act as a 3-D scaleable thing or do I need to do this in Sketch-up?

Hello Jim:

If you uncheck Create Plug-In Object in the Create Image Prop dialog box, it will create a textured 3D polygon rather than an Image Prop plugin. You can then rotate the polygon any which way in 3D.

This is a quick way to make things like paintings for the wall, rugs, etc.
