I use Fredoscale Stretch A LOT to make different versions of the same window type. I wonder if these modifications would be difficult or impossible--and if they might happen someday:

1. If nested components are unchanged in the operation have them stay the same definition.
2. If nested components are changed in the operation, make them "unique" with new name (how it works now).
3. Do this for all nested components. (At present I am not sure what rules apply. If I have components, say a muntins in a sash, and I stretch the window: The sash which is used in other windows might not change in those non-operation components (it becomes unigue), but the muntins might be affected in those other windows--which isn't desirable.)
4. If multiple instances of the same component are changed in the operation AND they remain identical to one another--make them unique from the old version but the share the same definition (e.g. two identical window components in the same assembly).

oh, and an aside: Is there a way to have the divider always on by default? It never is and the hot key doesn't work for me (on a Mac).

Thank you for the wonderful plugins. I use them A LOT. :D

These suggested enhancements can be done and make a lot of sense actually.
I think that the current behavior if that all components and nested components are made unique.

Indeed I have to dive again into the code which is now old for me.

For the divider, you have an option in the Default Parameters dialog box to enable or disable the Divider (and also the slicer for Bend) by default.

FredoScale doesn't allow absolute input? I must admit, I never tried before, but as the native SketchUp Scale tool accepts absolute input (scale to 100mm -> will scale to match size, not the scaling ratio), I just needed to scale very precisely with FredoScale and it seems to not work like that.

Please confirm. Thanks

-Pick a tool;
-click on a handle. You can press CTRL if you want to scale symmetrically from the centre;
-press TAB key;
-input a measure;
-click OK or press ENTER.

Hello everyone,


Amazing plugin! But, the more I use it I go finding some problems, I don´t know if they are common bugs or just limitations of the plugin.

I usually have problems at exploding, grouping or regrouping geometry that has been sheared preaviously (I have just noticed it when using "shear").

The reshaped elements or components return to their original shape, (previous to FredoScale), after doing any of the operations listed:

- after exploding a reshaped group. (sometimes)
- after "copying-pasting out" a plane from a reshaped group.
- after grouping a set of reshaped groups.

Can I use this to scale a component without scaling any inner components/geometry (just increasing and decreasing the space between objects)?

I.E there are 20 sub components in the the component and I would like the components to remain the same size while scale, and only the size between the components to shrink and expand proportionally.

From your description I don't think so. I have not seen any sort of setting that would allow that. You can do that sort of thing sequentially in one direction with "stretching" controlling the "divider" location, and performing a stretch for each space, but it wouldn't be possible in all directions.

Yeah unfortunately; however I found another method:

If someone has access to sketchup pro and dynamic components he can permanently set the dimensions of each component (for example in the size attributes click lenx, type "=40",press enter and repeat for lenY and LenZ) and it's really simple to do. Then no mater how many components he has selected and scales them all at ones they will always remain the original size, increasing or decreasing the space between them. Saves a lot of time when doing seating on stadiums for example.

Regular Sketchup users will have to do it the old fashion way until someone creates a plugin for this.

Hi,

Just installed Sketchup 2017, and when using the Fredoscale- radial bending sketchup crashes as soon as the command is completed. Just wondering whether this is a problem with my system or a known compatibility problem for Sketchup 2017?

Kind Regards,

Nigel

I just tested it and it works fine on my machine. Did you install Fredoscale and LibFredo6 fresh from the Plugin Store or did you just copy over from an older SU install?

Could you post or PM the model, with indications of which part you try to bend.
In general complications come from multiple instances of components.

hi guys
Actually I am having the same problem in Sketchup 2017 Pro. I wanted to bend a cube, and as soon I exit the tool it bugsplatted on me. It also crashes using "twisting with orientation of scaling box". It only happens when the object is a group or component.

Hi Fredo!

I have a colleague with the same issue as FZSarasota and pjalbert, after using
radial bend and deselect the object SUP17 crash, it occurs only when used on a
component or a group.

You are however able to save the bend first and then deselect the object to preserve it
when you reopen the document.

As we use this tool everyday in our work its very frustrating. I have the same
setup except i use Windows 10 and he uses Windows 7, for me it works perfect.
We have tried to re-install the plugins whithout any result.

Otherwise, Thank you for a great plugin!

For info, the crash of RadialBend (and Twist), when you have the Dicing on, is identified.

There is another thread to follow up on the issue.

I don't have a 'clean' fix for the time being.

Just reinstalled FredoScale v2.8a in SU 2017. Working fine, but the Extension Manager says 'Outdated signature'. The LibGFredo6 extension is happily saying 'Signed'.

Does this matter?
