Without your SKP it's impossible to say what's wrong.
Are there any errors in the Ruby Console when it fails ?

I wish Lattice Maker would keep the latest input. It is very time-consuming to have to enter the same info every time I create a glazed plane during a modeling session. Also, it could show in the context menu.

Otherwise, it is great.

Its now signed for full compatibility with newer SketchUp versions.
It also remembers settings during a session.
It now also has a context-menu item to run it
Its lingvo translation files are now found in its /latticeMaker subfolder.

This is great! Thanks for this and so many other amazing extensions.

Lattice Maker is a deceptively simple extension but tremendously useful nonetheless.

By the way, the changes work fine on mac.

Best regards.

I tested LaticeMaker on your SKP.
I also used View > Hidden Geometry > ON to see that some faces are split into triangular facets.

The top two rows of faces processed without error - although the skewed hole produced an odd result - caused by the faces' modelling - see the image below ?
Processing the bottom row en masse threw an error about non-planar points - I'm looking into trapping for that - BUT if I processed that bottom row in several parts, and it works OK, except for the long rectangle on the left - which is where the non-planar vertices spring from.
I suspect that the long rectangle has points which are nor quite coplanar, but near enough for SketchUp to form a face, but which fail in the API code when adding back faces as the copied vertices are seen as non-planar points.

Here v2.1

Download


I've now trapped the glitch for faces with slightly non-planar vertices.
Works OK with the problem SKP.
[Note that I tweaked the skewed pane to tidy it up]

It will not work this way. From within Sketchup click on Extension Manager. At the very bottom of the window, you will find Install Extension. Click on it and locate the file you want to install. This is all you have to do. For some extensions, you will have to restart Sketchup. I am not sure Lattice Maker is one of them.

Edson beat me to the draw !

The reason that it is not working is that you have not installed it !
Remove the RBZ file from your Plugins folder [and also any other RBZ files you have incorrectly placed there].
Typically your RBZ downloads go into your Downloads folder and you don't need to access your user's Plugins folder at all.


Here is how you install ANY Extension/Plugin from its RBZ file.

Open SketchUp [v2019].
Choose the menu item Window > Extension Manager.
A dialog opens.
Near the bottom is a red-button "Install Extension".
In the dialog that opens find the RBZ file, and select it.
Agree to any warning messages you get.
Now the Extension is installed.

In the case of this one it should become immediately available in the Extensions menu; some others might need SketchUp restarting to ensure everything gets synced - e.g. if the installation requires a supporting Lib installation...


In passing... since you clearly have issues with a basic procedure like RBZ installation, I also worry that you might not have installed SketchUp properly...

Here is the only correct way to install or repair a complex app like SketchUp...

Whilst you are logged into Windows as your normal user-account [it doesn't matter if that user has some admin-powers, but do NOT do this as the special system-administrator account]...
Ensure SketchUp is closed.
Find the SketchUp installer's exe file - usually in your Downloads folder ?
Select that exe file's icon, right-click > context-menu > "Run as administrator"
When prompted choose "Repair" - or if it's a brand-new installation choose "Install".
When it completes restart SketchUp.

The "Repair" should fix errant permissions and not affect your own customizations adversely...

Installing a complex app in any other way will surely lead to all kinds of unpredictable issues - often relating to file and folder permissions, toolbar and other settings not getting remembered etc...

Never double-click an installer's exe file to "Run" it - even if you have some admin-powers the result is NOT the same...
