Quick tip : Ivy / Hedges
SketchUp file: ivy.skp
- See how the leaf component's axes are set up.
- Random distribution with Wrap (UV) mode
- Use “Pointing Direction” all the way to “Normal”.
- Check “Swap object’s Y and Z axes”
- Use random X rotation between -30 and 0 (or other values) to control how much the leaves will lean to the ground. You can also put some random Y and Z rotation for more diversity.
