New computer and new sketchup8 with all maintenance updates installed but Get dimension, trim & keep no longer work for groups only components. Two of my favorites. Please help

I made a minor update to version 1.1 for SketchUp 2014, but didn't really see why it didn't work. See 1st post.

Hi Kurt, as you know I don't use groups but I just made a couple and tested Get Dimension and it works just fine on them. According to the description for Trim and Keep, the thing that gets trimmed must be a component. The idea for that plugin was to have a tool similar to the Solid Tools Trim tool which didn't result in components being converted to groups. For me that conversion of components to groups is a big down side to using the Solid Tools. I'd love to see Jim create new versions of the other Solid tools that keep the components like Trim and Keep does.

Hi
Is there in the newest Version not a small Icon for that plugin? I have to go to Plugins/get dimensions?

No. There is no toolbar for this and it isn't needed. Just assign it a keyboard shortcut.

I tested the plugin before it was released. Don't remember it having a toolbar. Have always had a keyboard shortcut set up for it. Jim's original post from 2010 doesn't mention a toolbar button.

Go to Preferences>Shortcuts. Search for Plugins/Get Dimensions. Add the keyboard shortcut and click on the +.

@ll: wow ... nice features, but in the old get_dimensions.rb by 'CptanPanic' its possible to get the area in m² and the volume m³.

area = dims[2].to_m * dims[1].to_m
volume = dims[2].to_m * dims[1].to_m * dims[0].to_m


does anyone put that feature in rb-scripts here?

sorry for the bad english.

thx so far and best regards
a.

Thanks so much !

It has an entry in the PluginStore http://sketchucation.com/pluginstore?pl ... dimensions
So you can get it as an RBZ archive for auto-installation.
Manually installing RB files can be risky.
Also note that this script is five years old and much has changed in SketchUp since then - however, simple well written older scripts like this can often work across many versions...
Almost all scripts are now available in RBZ format making installation less fraught if you have >= v8M2...

Is it possible to rewrite the plugin to make it installable from sketchup plugin center?
Is it possible to make it look different - more modern, not as ugly popup window,
for example: show in window dimensions (as we made height depth lenght measurement tool) and make the plugin 'active' or 'not active' so that every model i click shows its dimensions?
Anyway, great tool, grats!

It's already available in the Sketchucation Plugin Store. What more do you need? :roll:

Get the SCF Plugin Store extension and use it to install this plugin or just download the .rbz file and use Install Extension.

Greetings.

Alas it does not work with SU 2017 as far as I experience.
Should it be any equivalent or a version of that plugin for 2017 release?

Thank t=you in advance

What do you mean it doesn't work? I've been using Jim's Get Dimensions all along and it works just fine for me.

In fact, here's an example I made just now with SketchUp 2017.

You can either install the RB file manually or get the RBZ version here and use Install Extension or better, install the Sketchucation Extension Store tool and use it to automatically install the plugins and extensions host here on Sketchucation.

Can't seem to find the plugin in Extension Store... is still available, or was removed?

As I wrote back in April of last year, Jim has withdrawn his extensions and plugins and they aren't available anymore. Get Dimensions was a useful one for me but I've not seen a similar one by any other author.
