Two steps to quickly get you started with Skatter:
A SketchUp model can contain many compositions. For instance, a landscape architect could create a composition for grass, another one for a tree grove, yet another one for gravel on the ground, and so on.
There are several ways to create a new composition:
- Click the New compositionbutton in Skatter's toolbar
- Click the Composition managerbutton in Skatter's toolbar and then click theicon
Extensions > Skatter 2 > New compositionin SketchUp's menus
A composition is made of three main parts:
Click the Generate button to create the instances in the SketchUp model
Congratulations, you just made your first Skatter composition!
This is very useful when you want to generate thousands of objects without slowing down SketchUp's viewport.
You can now play with each setting to understand what they do.
