Did you identify what was the problem (in case this happens to other users)?

Fredo


I did not, but I think it appeared when I closed and re-opened sketchup. I assumed it would load once the plugin was loaded and enabled.

Loving it so far but I can't figure out how to round edges that are on the inside/interior of an object. If I try to do that, it covers the opening. I'm sure that's somewhere in this long thread.. any idea what page to look at?

Just erase the cover face(s). The rounding is underneath.

NEW RELEASE: RoundCorner v3.2e - 25 Oct 17

RoundCorner 3.2e is a maintenance release. It fixes a weird issue on French platforms, preventing the plugin to launch (in relation with decimal separator differences)..

I am working on knife and when I use the round over tool I loose faces. A copy of the handle is at 1000x as I wanted to show that scaling up does not fix the issue I have. My model is at the origin original size and it has a volume.
I have used this wonderful tool many times before but I seem to have developed this model in a way that is not compatible with the round over tool.
I used Cuviloft to skin if that is a factor. Also I welded all the perimeter lines hoping that might help, it did fix some issues.
Thanks
Jeff

Even scaled up, the tiny radius on the round overs creates some bad geometry. Make a reasonable radius and it works. I used 10 in.

It all depends on your geometry.

As it has been generated by Curviloft, I imagine it is triangulated. Just turn on Hidden Geometry to verify it.

In that case, I am afraid that RoundCorner will have difficulty to perfrom its task, whatever the scale is. Sorry for that. Another algorithm is needed to handle those cases.

Did you try with a larger radius? I used 10 in., not 5 in.

Edit to add: I redrew the shape rather than trying to reconstruct yours. I didn't use Curviloft so I didn't have the triangulation.

I had some trouble in using this plugin. The object I had rounded seemed like useless afterwards, I could not move nor color it, or anything else since my SU 2013 would crash if I do that. Before rounding, I have set the offset etc to the appropriate value. Could someone advice me what to do? I have also installed the newest LibFred

Can you share an example?

What is your graphics card? Are it's drivers up to date?

I use AMD A8-7410 APU with AMD Radeon R5 Graphics, 2200 Mhz, 4 Core(s), and yes, my graphic card is up to date.
I was just trying to round a cube and I wanted to move it, but my SU then suddenly crashed. I had also tried to uncheck the 'hardware accelerator' but for no use.

Are you really running SU2013 (as your profile indicates)?
