Architectural plugins

Postby Deanby7 » Sat Jul 02, 2016 12:51 am

With the help of some forum members here, I have written some plugins for architectural modelling, namely:-

External wall opener - after placing window/door component on a wall, plugin creates reveals and moves window/door component into the wall.

Internal wall opener - after placing door component on a wall, plugin creates a frame and architrave and moves door into frame.

Staircase builder - creates staircase steps/risers/stringers from user parameters such as floor to floor height, stair width, number of steps in each flight (max 3), turn type (ie landing or winders). This is useful for trying out various staircase configurations. The stringers are a bit naff, and there are no balustrades etc.

I've had fun writing these, and I find them handy, but wondered if they might be useful to anyone here.

I'm happy to share these, and if anyone wants to improve them, I'd be happy receive comments/suggestions. They seem to work ok for me on SU8.

Let me know if anyone is interested.

They look interesting, but also fairly simple...

I.e. for the External wall opener, I'd prefer to have the plugin making the door or the window in one go...

:ecstatic: Why on earth are you using such an old version of SU...?
I'm only interested in plugins working with latest SU builds - and 64 bit...

The wall opening plugins do work with SU2016. They provide a way of inserting any door or window component so long as they are rectangular!

And even better you can make the convertion in local inside SketchUp!


qrVR Exporter v1.0.0!
http://sketchucation.com/pluginstore?pln=kubity free

That makes a PDF with a link and the magic square!


So :)

These look interesting. Downloaded the wall and door open tools and will try them out.

Thanks for sharing.
