The Wall Lamp sketchup is a great way to bring your design to life. Wall lamps, also known as sconces, are stylish accessories that can really make a room glow. There are many different types of wall lamps available, including LED and halogen models. Here are some tips to help you choose the right one for your space.
First, decide where you want the light to be anchored. This doesn’t have to be the exact position of the light, but should be a reference point. This will help you keep the light in the same general area as your other fixtures. Using the Light Tool, click where you want the light to be anchored. You can use the inferencing features of SketchUp to constrain the position along a line, axis or face. This will help you avoid having the light move when you rotate your model.
Next, you can adjust the light’s Luminous Intensity and Beam Angle. You can also use the Edit Object tool to change the light’s color and material. You can also assign a photometric IES file to the light fixture to get more accurate product-based lighting results. When this option is selected, the IES information appears in the Light Item Editor, and the representative cone graphic changes in the preview.
Once you have the light in place, you can add more lights to your model to create a more realistic rendering. For example, if you’re creating a porch light, you can use the Render Ready Components dialog to select and place a porch light, then add the light to your scene in the Interior BR Lights layer. You may need to remove some objects that would block the light or make them transparent to enable it to shine through.
