Texture Libraries

From VectorWiki

Textures in VectorWorks are 3D attributes that can be either image-based or procedural. If a site offers textures in an image file format, these can be imported into VectorWorks and used as textures.

The 2D equivalent of a texture in VectorWorks is an image fill. These are strictly image-based. Depending on your needs, existing texture libraries might work as 2D image fills, and VectorWorks allows you to convert textures to image fills for use in 2D.

Image props are 2D images that can be used in 3D contexts, especially where the 3D geometry that it would take to get the desired effect would be too expensive in terms of file size, rendering times, etc. The most common example of a great time to use an image prop is for 3D trees.
