Can any other user try to reproduce it?

I detected that the freez only happens when i have set the planes to a certain position and hit control, then 2 planes apear instead of one and i stretch from the center, but while im stretching the component SU freezes, always.

Thxs for responding.
All the rest works like charm :sketchstatic:

You should just be able to click on it and it should pop up a windows asking if you want to save or open. What operating system are you on? What browser are you using?

Get rid of Internet explorer and get either Firefox or Google Chrome. Both are free and a lot less of a headache.

hmmmm, I would'nt say that IE is that bad, pretty stable IMO.

However I noticed that Malvin is using version 6, considering version 8 is out and he has not upgraded one can deduce that he does not have updates enabled therefore all his definitions and drivers are probably outdated.

Yes, solo, I do not have updates enabled so that might be the reason but I do download stuff now and then and only very seldom I run into this problem when instead of zip I have file.php downloaded. That might be the promlem

Thanks

i noticed a quirk?
if i use the SP toolbar to create a cone, i cannot stretch it up or down no matter what. i can however stretch it from the sides?

its not too important to me i just thought i'd mention it in case its a bigger thing than i can tell.

Thank you very much Fredo!

But it seems that the streching tool doesn't work on cylinders.

stretch wont affect curves.
to affect it you must explode the curve first.

Pete, I just un-installed 8 as it was causing some issues and couldn't be bothered to troubleshooting... less time on FreeScale. ;)

You are right
The problem with a cone is that upwards its made of triangles you cannot stretch a triangle it would be the same as using scale.

As it wont work with a 3 side piramid in any direction

jmmad,

On your problem of freeze, and since you seem to be able to reproduce the problem, could you just try with the attached file (just drop it into the FREESCALE_Dir_20 folder).

I am not too sure of what it can be, but I rewrite one part of the code differently.

Thanks to advise

I did what you told me.
But the freeze continues but its only with this component y tried to duplicate the bug with similar components (a component with 4 nested components inside) and the tool works perfect.
Its strange i think this might be a isolated problem not much to worry about.

Thxs for the concern and help

Daniel,

Can you try if this works for you (drop the attached file into LIBFREDO6_Dir_31 folder). I must say that I did not know this function, but using it a little bit, it seems very convenient. So thank you for signaling it and evangelizing other users.

Works great for endpoints but if you place the protactor on edges and drag it dosen´t lock in the exact point you start the operation. Is like the protactor slips. The same happens if you place the protactor on a face and drag.

Thank you for adding this option!!! :sketchstatic: :sketchstatic:

Is it possible to use the radial Bending only for "slicer" a volume without to bend?
If yes how?
If I click (start end) a "straight line" along an edge nothing append when release the protractor without bending :oops:

I had the idea to isolate the slicer as a separate tool (then in 3 directions). so at least one requestor.
In between, you have one in SketchyFFD

Fredo

PS: If you don't bend, then nothing happens, which is the natural and intentional behavior

They are still co-planar. But there is hidden lines created there. Turn on Hidden Geometry and erase the lines on that surface and you can do a regular push/pull.

Very simple;
If you show hidden geometry you'll see all the subface.
In your case, you can easily clean up all those coplanar edges, and then have a surface you can push pull with the native Sketchup tool.

Fredo

Actually, I could have the script do the clean up of coplanar edges automatically as an option. Maybe I'll do that.
