Solidworks Help Please - Appearances Mapping

Solidworks Help Please - Appearances Mapping

(OP)
Hello,

So basically I work for a company which designs and builds cupboards. We have particular textures available (i.e. different types of wood or gloss)

I was wondering if it is possible to be able to drag an appearance (a JPEG image) onto an already drawn cupboard and for the mapping to be automatic. So on the front of the cupboard the wood grain should be vertical and on the side of the cupboards it is also vertical but with plain coloured filleted edging.


Please could you help to find:

1) How to make a folder of our personal wood grains available from the SolidWorks Screen
2) How to make the mapping automatic so that when applying a certain wood grain it is always orientated in the correct direction along with the correct coloured edges.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thank you very much

Sarah
