[Request] component filler for volumes

Postby Propeer » Thu Oct 20, 2016 7:48 am

Hi Dev's,

I'm a silent fan of Sketchup and a great deal of your extensions. Thnx for all the effort. Now I've got a challenge, for which I don't seem to find te right tool. Maybe you can show me where to look or maybe you'll get enthusiastic about the challenge and start doing the thing you do good.

I've got a volume created by a surface, a curve and the follow me tool. This shape represents a part of a dike, being a bank revetment (I use SU for civil engineering: brainstorm sessions, impressions, technical principles, etc.) The shape has to be filled / replaced by components of rocks and stones. I could do this manually, though a extension which could do this would be awesome.

Maybe a more easy way of picturing the challenge is filling a glass bottle with marbles. Is there a tool for that or can it be made?

Love to hear from you! :D

Edit: The best tool for now is PathCopy by Smustard team, only this won't allow me to fill a volume if the shape changes along the line. Of course it's build for a path, not a volume.

Just create your Bottle
And use MS Physics or SketchyPhysics for fill it with marbles from the top neck bottle! ;)


My English tutorial ;)


Here was made with eggs and SKetchyPhysics! :)
By Pierreaudoin!


Like this you can use any volumes and any filling objects! :ugeek:

This will be more hard! :mrgreen:

Ah nice! I did consider it, though I thought SketchyPhysics was a dead end.

Last time I installed it was about 3 years ago I think. Lets go play again.

Eggs are good as well - but only very fragile when falling down in SketchyPhysics :lol:
