    SketchUp Plugins...

    ...to make your life easier:



    Here are some instructions how to install these plugins (certainly valid not only for Smustard scripts). Also, if you use SU 7,you willl have to install them in the respective app's folder.

    Thanks for the plugins.

    Construction Line Tool - I find idea for this this little plugin very simple but useful. You basicly use special pencil to draw with Guides (after installing it's added in the toolbar list). Later you can delete them all with one command in the menu.

    Here is a plugin that isn't out yet but I am looking forward to. Its going to make creating city with roads a breeze! Imagine dynamic components and the follow me tool on steroids then mush them together. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcpGwlfu3vU

    This one adds a lot of extra power to SketchUp.

    Sketchy Physics

    Installed plugins that I find super helpful:
    1. Weld - Combines multiple lines into a polygon. Great for making smooth extrudes.
    2. Stray Lines - Highlights, labels, or deletes any lines not part of faces. Great for finding those pesky little bits left over from an import.
    3. Grid - makes a grid at a user definable size. Great for layout and can give a nice ground plane for setting stuff up.


    And this is a basic place to start:

    I'm jealous of you PC users for Sketchyphysics! I hope it comes soon: version two, still BETA, but it says mac support on the way!

    Rogue-z is here!
