Hi!

I cannot get to a certain softening result exampled in the manual. Both Borders and Corners are sharp edges there, only Inner Edges are soft and smooth. In my case, Corners are also soft and smooth even though I didn't check them as soft and smooth.

Thanks for signaling. Strange that nobody did before, because it is likely dated 207, when SU2017 introduced a change of the API (related to IDs and Explode Group) that screwed up a lot of plugins.

I fixed it in v3.2f.

Thanks for the fix!

I was also wondering if Round Corner could work woth groups and compos (not only loose geometry), so that we don't have to open a group to chamfer its edges. It would make work much faster with e.g. multiple boxes at once.

Not planned with RoundCorner unfortunately.

Correct. RoundCorner can only perform symmetrical rounding.

Hello everybody!

I support lema. Too often this feature is missing.

There is also a need to build such corners.
I understand that this operation can be done using the Curviloft plug-in, but still, it would be easier and faster.

Thank you very much Fredo6 for his work !!!

How did you install the plugins?
- Sketchup Extension manager, after downloading the RBZ files?
- or Sketchucation PluginStore tool?

Hi

Rounding an edge excluding the corners generates the arc as connected segments, not a curve/arc.
is it possible that along edges an arc/curve is generated?
That would help a lot in technical drawings where I need to know the radius of the rounding arc.
The corners are generated perfectly.

This is actually not so easy, because Arc / Curve is a transient property (think of an Arc when deformed by non-uniform scaling).
There are plugins to retrieve the center of an arc, as far I as remember.

Why not follow the instructions in the message and get the newest version of LibFredo ?
It's available from the PluginStore, just like the related extensions which use that Lib...
Your version is very out of date !

After installing the Lib restart SketchUp to ensure everything gets synced...

Hello, I've been a loyal user of this tool for a very long time, great work!

I've been trying for a long time to get it to sort of.. maintain a radius when rounding a corner. For example, I'm trying to set up a part and calculate pocket cuts of a CNC machine's endmill, when it can't accurately do an interior corner because of the size of the endmill. When I round with say a 1/8" radius, it seems to do a non-circular rounding when doing anything other then 90 degrees. Is there a solution for this? Doing it manually sucks =)

Here is a picture for an example. I want the right's inner bends, but the plugin instead gives me what's on the left.

At least for now you could use TIG's 2D Fillet from his 2D Tools set.

ITman496 made a very relevant observation.

Indeed this concerns borders where the edge angle is different from 90 degrees.

In RoundCorner and FredoCorner, the offset is measured perpendicularly to the borders, along their faces.

Corner - Radius 1.png


As a result, the rounding is not a circle, but it is scaled to be tangent at faces. All pictures below generated with an ofset of 1.5 m and a Circle profile.

Corner - Radius Off.png



However, there is another possibility, which is to make the rounding so that it matches a circle with a radius equal to the offset value

Corner - Radius 0.png


Corner - Radius - On.png


This is a matter of choice indeed, so it has to be an option, which I am implementing in FredoCorner.

Below are the same solid rounded with the two options

Corner Radius - All - Face.png


Corner Radius - All - Radius.png


As far as I remember, I discarded the radius mode because it gives border rounding which are visually non uniform. But, the option is valid geometrically, especially if it is to generate the shape for 3D Printing.

Thank you for that explanation, Fredo. I'm happy to know it'll be a feature in FredoCorner.

Dave,

It should be possible in FredoCorner (but more complex in RoundCorner).

Again, the result is visually different

Re: [Plugin] RoundCorner - v3.3a - 18 Dec 18

Postby oyercab » Thu Dec 27, 2018 6:02 pm

Hello,
About two weeks ago I received an error message about RoundCorner when starting Sketchup 2018 Pro. I didn't save the message, and don't know exactly what it said, but RoundCorner was no longer available. I'm on macOS High Sierra (can't upgrade any higher). I updated Fredo6 to the latest version, restarted Sketchup, and then updated RoundCorner and restarted. The toolbar appears, but is completely unresponsive. I also tried installing FredoCorner. Its toolbar has never appeared, but I can put the icons in my main toolbar. It is also unresponsive.

In the "Fredo6 Collection" under Tools both RoundCorner and FredoCorner are showing, along with their menus, but I can't do anything with them. I've been using RoundCorner for years, and can barely function without it (many thanks, Fredo). Please, somebody help!
(I did install through Extension Manager in Sketchup).

Thank you, and hope everybody had a Merry Christmas.

@oyercab

You seem to use Sketchup 8. Can you confirm?

Can you open the Ruby Console, and check for error message when you launch RoundCorner.

Thanks

Hello Fredo, I use SU2018 Pro. I did open Ruby Console, and the LibFredo6 plugin seems to be the problem. I installed the latest version through Extension Manager and followed instructions carefully, closing and re-starting Sketchup before installing RoundCorner. I then closed and re-started before installing FredoCorner. As I said, the toolbars and icons are there, but they don't do anything.

This problem started suddenly, after I had been away from the computer for a week. When I launched SketchUp, the error message about RoundCorner was on the screen, and its toolbar had disappeared. I'm going to try deleting and re-installing LibFredo6 again, but have already done that several times. Can I post the Ruby Console info here if I have no luck?
