Apply Texture

You will first need to upload textures as png or jpeg to your headset (locally or via cloud) and then import them to the sketch from the Reference Images menu (learn more about this in Reference Images). 

Once the images are in the sketch, they will automatically appear in the color panel. Alternatively, you can apply the texture by selecting the image with the color picker.
