The drape tool only drapes in a vertical fashion (whats the coordinate? X,Y?) So if for example I wanted to drape a #2 on the side of a slope it becomes distorted, elongated. Love your work by the way.
I lead no one, I follow no one...god help you if you break my stride.
The script is now translated to Chinese, thanks to the effort of the CLT Team at SketchupBar.

Changing the axes has no effect in your inference system.. it still uses the standard axes.
Look that the standard SU tools are not using the original orientation of the axes.
Is there a way to choose that Tools on Surface can use the user defined axes instead the standard ones?
Can someone please assist me with installing this plugin on Mac OS 10.6.2 (SU 7.1) I have unzipped the folder into SU plugin folder and moved Toolsonsurface.plugin to the Sketchup application package. I see no new menus in Sketchup.
I started to draw an arc on a curved face, and here is the result,....what is wrong with it? I was expecting that result , be somthimg like the black line , but finally I had the red line ,as result.
On Mac, the plugin files should be copied to Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Google SketchUp 7/SketchUp/plugins
Please make sure that your unzipping operation leads to the same footprint as indicated in page 2 of the PDF documentation, that is:
The 2 folders, LIBFREDO6_Dir_34 and TOS_Dir_15 must contains several files (.rb, .lang, ...) and a subfolder IMAGES_STANDARD (make sure that you do not have another LIBFREDO6_Dir_34 or TOS_Dir_15 embedded).
If needed, unzip in a separate place, check the files and directories and then copy them in the Sketchup Plugin folder:
PS: if it still does not work, then I must call the Mac user community to help.
First post on the first page of this thread.
I see that you have Whaat´s "subdivide and smooth". Use the knife tool (a.k.a. zorro) in parallel projection. Also you can group the faces you don´t want to divide:
Hi Toucan, the script is located in the first post of this thread. Go back to page one and look for a download link there. Have fun!
Lately you've been tan, suspicious for the winter.
All my Plugins I've written
I occasionally get this happening while using TOS. What's causing it?
I wanted to draw an arc between the two points - going across the two faces.
The algorithm has many flaws, espcially on shape volumes that are closed.
I am thinking of a serious refresh to resolve these problems (and some others).
So it some times picks the wrong distance/direction between the two points? A workaround would be to break the volume somehow?
Somehow, it works much better when the surface is open.
But I know how to fix the problem. No easy, but I need some time, as I have to revisit the whole algorithm.
Rightclick menues issue..
After having installed Fredo6 Tools on surface + FredoScale I´m having the darnest stupid problem:
Most contextual menues are greyed out, like Intersect with model, Flip along Groups Red, and so on..
I can create shortcuts to these commands and they work as expected, but I rely heavily on shortcuts in my work and list of shortcuts is getting more and more crowded. Have I done something wrong here and this is normal behavior? I have been searching the forum but so far havent found a description af this "problem".
I have most definetely missed out on something here and the fault is obviously mine (as it usually is) but I really would appreciate an input to help me solve this matter.

I have heard that this problem is related to SU itself, though it may be 'helped' by some plugins.
I got it occasionally, even not using any plugins.
A minor issue and not sure if this is Mac related.
I can only get the default icons to show.
If I go into Default Parameters and choose IMAGES_DanielS then save changes, it does nothing. I can open the default parameters again and the box is un-ticked.
I have the latest version installed.
Thanks loads for this tool, your work is great!
Just replace the default icons with the ones you wish (in the plugins directory). Thats actually the way I did it.
I’m also having another issue. IDK if this has been discussed before or not, but after I use this tool I sometimes loose right click options such as; smooth, make group/component, reverse faces, etc.

I have this issue too.
The issue of loosing some right-click context-menu items [i.e. they get "greyed-out"] is a known bug with more recent versions of SketchUp - Google are being pressed to fix it...
Its cause is not wholly established, although having lots of plugins that make context-menu items and repeated clicking on objects seem to both trigger it - separately or together !
All of a context-menu's items still appear correctly under the last item in the main Edit Menu - so you can access them this way if the worst happens...
The only 'fix' is to save and restart SUp - then you should get back the context-menu, albeit momentarily.
Don't load plugins you aren't ever going to use - they increase the load and might just be the 'last-straw...' - move them out of the Plugins folder or rename them from .rb to .txt - that way you can always load them during a session by typing in the Ruby Console load"the_script_name.txt" ...
