1. Ruby Code Editor

This code editor extension offers a simple-to-use and visually attractive way to write and adapt Ruby scripts directly within Sketch Up. These scripts can then be used to make geometry, adjoin functionality or add data within the Sketch Up 3D modeling environment.

The Sketch Up Ruby API gives an wide-ranging set of functions to automatize SketchUp in many ways or create scripted, computational geometry. This editor mainly created for two reasons: A gorgeous way to change and run Sketch up Ruby code correct within of Sketch Up?s 3D modeling setting. Often this is done in an external editor, but having an internal editor allows for using both scripting and modeling concurrently ? depending on your needs.

The other reason for this extension is coding. This bunch of reference web pages to a browser window easier. Gorgeous and spotless editor user edge with menu-based UI Light / dark themed editor Allows executing multi-line Ruby code openly in SketchUp Works with files of any size Fast opening and code importance of large files recently used file list Keyboard shortcut routing Line numbering in editor Indenting/dedenting of code blocks Matching brackets, current line highlighting Undo/redo in editor Find/replace in editor (text or RegEx) Code folding Insert code snippets at cursor Code-completion for SketchUp classes and methods Automatic backup file creation Various options: font size, tab/space indenting Undo of code execution Single undo option for entire code Results window keeps track of run history Possibility to run external Ruby files Reference web browser for common websites Explore selection object properties and attributes Option for direct access to the Ruby console Option to edit default code snippet Clean printing of code.

2. 3D Warehouse Tools

It reviews the model and removes any non necessary lines, marks, etc. before you upload the model into 3D Warehouse. Show Nesting Levels is an illustration way of analyzing the construction of a selection or the entire model. It creates a sheet for each nesting level that is found in the collection and sets the replica display to Color by layer.

The layers use well-known AutoCAD colors: red-1, yellow-2, green-3, cyan-4, blue-5, magenta-6 silver-7. Save Screen Image allows you compose the model straightforwardly in SketchUp, then capture the screen as a jpg file for communication and additional analysis.

It saves the image in the same folder as the model sequentially at any time through the review. the selection or the entire model use to view information about model Report. The Top Level Information shows you the number of mechanism and groups at the initial level when modifying the component.

3. Cut Map

Cut Map is a full-featured SketchUp extension for woodworkers and builders. The extension creates in-model cutting diagrams (cutlists) from a Sketch Up models. The power Leverage of Sketch Up is to view, inspect, and adapt cutlists. CutMap for SketchUp 2017 is now available In-model cut lists.

4. Rotated Rectangle Tool Example

This tool helps to create rectangles in arbitrary orientations.

This extension is a previous version of SU 2015's rotated rectangle tool. It is proposed to be an example for ruby developers who want to build convention tools.

The tool enables you to sketch a rectangle by first sketch the length (in any direction) and then the width (in any direction).

5. Attribute Inspector

Attributes in SketchUp are supplementary pieces of data that can be stored with any entity, like groups, mechanism, scenes. For example one can stock up a part number, unit price, weight or notes with an entity and read or adjust that information later. All attributes are integrated in Sketch Up's report characteristic.


Menu: Window ? Attribute Inspector
